Youth-Led Programming

November 5, 2022, 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Join Circles & Ciphers’ Youth Care Collective (YCC) to discuss how restorative justice is connected to hip-hop and how it meets at the intersection of prison abolition. This includes sharing examples of the earliest roots of hip-hop in Chicago, and how hip-hop and the arts can be used for harm prevention and reduction for a world where prison systems do not exist. This workshop centers on the importance of checking in, community building, and sending positivity and encouragement, as participants write letters to youth currently incarcerated in Cook County Jail.

Participating facilitators and artists: Nikia Watkins, Justine Ogbevire, and Shayne Khaalvin

Youth-Led Programs are organized by Christiana Castillo, Manager of Learning, Youth Interpretive Programs. This is an ASL-interpreted, youth-led event. If you have any questions about Youth-Led programming, please email Christiana Castillo.
