Beyond the Bars 2019: Call for Artists

The 9th Annual Beyond the Bars Conference at Columbia University is seeking artwork in response to the theme of this year’s conference focusing on women and girls: the impact of incarceration and criminalization on women and girls, their families and communities. The many struggles for justice, equity and safety led by women directly impacted by the criminal justice system will be at the heart of the conference as we create a space to design change.

We encourage submissions from women, artists from the LGBTQ+ community, and artists whose work represents experiences and identities that are often underrepresented in the arts. We look forward to seeing your work.

Application submission:
The deadline is February 15, 2019
