Chios’ Other Voices:
How might we bridge the distance between prisons and the communities that surround them? What kind of justice-centered project might facilitate artistic expression and an encounter with the humanities, while also reaching out to broader audiences? In this workshop anthropologist and filmmaker Stratis Vogiatzis from the Caravan Project meets with Columbia’s Justice-in-Education Initiative faculty member Neni Panourgiá and alumni Martin Garcia, Wilfredo Laracuente, and Robert Rose to discuss the SNFPHI-supported project Chios’ Other Voices. The project is based around the the efforts of people incarcerated in the prison on the island of Chios, Greece, many of them immigrants who lack a shared language of communication, to create a zine.
*This is an online event organized in collaboration with the Justice-in-Education Initiative.
