REHABILITATION THROUGH THE ARTS

On March 9, 2017 Katherine Vockins, Founder of RTA and Charles Moore, Alumni of the program gave an outstanding presentation explaining and outlining the need for rehabilitation in our state prisons.  RTA, starting 20 years ago, is a creative arts program, operating in 5 NYS maximum and medium security prisons.  Through workshops and performances in theatre, dance creative writing, voice, music and visual arts those incarcerated are able to develop life skills and change behavior patterns that help them cope upon release.

The program is largely self supporting and shows that arts are so much more than just a pretty picture or a fun experience.  We saw two amazing videos of the program at work and the comradery of the inmates as they participated. “Art allows you to think differently, so you behave differently so that you can get different results.  To me, that’s the definition of rehabilitation.”
