Lots of artists claim their work is supposed to take you to a particular place in time, and the launch of Mural Arts’ “Voices” is no different.

The incarceration project is kicking off with an art and literature exhibit inside SCI Graterford at 1:30 p.m. today, Nov. 30.

And you can livestream it here. How’s that for place?

“Voices” is the latest project from Mural Arts’ Restorative Justice Guild, the nonprofit’s paid apprenticeship program for incarcerated individuals and young adults on probation. “Voices” is a series of events designed to give incarcerated individuals and returning citizens a platform and encourage “healthy discourse on issues and policies” that impact them, starting with this week’s kickoff event at Graterford.

The exhibit will feature a movable art exhibit and readings from inmates, hip hop artists Freeway and Prodigy, actor Malik Yoba, author Shaka Senghor and more.

Make sure to catch the livestream this week. In the meantime, check out this short film highlighting the Guild Program — by Media in Neighborhoods Group cofounder Jon Kaufman — below.
