Daniel Minter with Indigo Arts Alliance & Southern Maine Women’s Reentry Center
In solidarity with Freedom & Captivity, and with support from the Crewe Foundation, Indigo Arts Alliance hosted a workshop series at the Southern Maine Women’s Reentry Center. The first workshop featured poet Arisa White, Professor of Creative Writing at Colby College. Artist and IAA co-founder Daniel Minter led the second workshop. For this workshop, the IAA Team brought together an intimate group of incarcerated women and their children to explore themes of home, connection, love, and tenderness. In preparation for the workshop, Daniel provided a full stamping kit, with pre-carved stamps, ink pads, a sketchbook, and a pre-stamped postcard for the women and children to share their work and connect with their loved ones.
