CulturaFest will host a workshop that is part of the project Prison Outside. Through artistic practices, the workshop participants will proceed to thinking about social justice, different walks of life and how we treat each other. The workshop participants will have an opportunity to express their feelings and thoughts, and thus become a part of a shared history. We will listen to music, write poetry, make art and use translation techniques to creatively cross mediums.
Anastasia Artemeva is the manager of Prison Outside � a project dedicated to possibilities and ways of connecting with people in and after prison.
Arlene Tucker is the author of the ongoing art installation Translation is Dialogue. One aspect of this project is a pedagogical approach to make art by using translation techniques. This process allows awareness of how one would like to communicate creatively and to build paths for understanding.
Sonny Elinkautinen Black is a rap musician based in Helsinki. He has experienced imprisonment firsthand. Sonny works directly with youth in the streets of east Helsinki and through correction institutions all over Finland, making music, singing, and encouraging young people to follow their dreams.
