SOMEDAY WE’LL ALL BE FREE is a multi-arts exhibit by the Youth Leadership Board of Creative Justice, an arts-based program that builds community with young people who are most impacted by mass incarceration. By exploring community-based alternatives to juvenile detention using social justice values, Creative Justice is redefining what justice is and what it can be.

The paintings and photos in this exhibit give voice to youth in our communities who want to have a public dialog about mass incarceration and abolition. Their creativity seeks answers to the questions: How can we create a society healthy enough that we do not need prisons? What does it mean to be free?

In Creative Justice, court-involved young people stay out of jail and in the community. Under the guidance of mentor artists, participants consider the root causes of incarceration like racism and other oppressions, focusing on the positive role their voices can have in building a more equitable society. The Youth Leadership Board consists of past Creative Justice participants who continue to shape the direction of the program through their creativity and vision.

Along with original art from Creative Justice mentor artists and youth, this exhibit is complemented by community portraits from Naomi Ishisaka and infographics about the impact of mass incarceration. Additionally, some pieces incorporate work from members of the Black Prisoner’s Caucus at the Washington State Reformatory at Monroe.

This exhibit is made possible with support from The Seattle Public Library Foundation, 4Culture, Office of Arts & Culture Seattle and the Seattle Foundation Resilience Fund.
