“Our goal is to create a multiracial, national cultural movement that is foundational and lasts”
Jesse Krimes, co-founder and president
Right of Return exemplifies how integrating artists into the reform movement can cultivate nimble, resonant, and engaging campaigns to end mass incarceration and advance racial equity. In just five-year, Right of Return has already had a transformative impact:
25 fellows have been supported in creating new works in partnership with advocacy organizations and leaders in the justice reform movement
30 new relationships have been fostered between artists and advocates working on policies and practices to end mass incarceration
Alumni have gone on to receive the MacArthur Genius grant, the Pulitzer Prize, Guggenheim Fellowships, Creative Capital awards, Creatives Rebuild New York awards, and Art for Justice grants.
Right of Return Alumni are included in many nationally celebrated projects, such as the groundbreaking publication and traveling exhibition Marking Time: Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration, by Dr. Nicole R. Fleetwood.
