The GA Incarceration Performance Project presents: By Our Hands

A first-of-its-kind endeavor, "By Our Hands" is a cross-institutional theatrical experience between Spelman College, the University of Georgia, librarians, archivists, students, professionals, incarcerated individuals, and community partners. The Georgia Incarceration Performance Project incorporates scenes directly from Georgia history to negotiate the relationship between incarceration, race, and the impact of forced labor through dance, media, and dramatic performance. This unique experience will be limited to four shows only.

Developed and directed by Dr. Amma Y. Ghartey-Tagoe Kootin, Dr. Emily Sahakian, Dr. Julie Johnson (Spelman College), and Dr. Keith Bolden (Spelman College).

This production is available free to the public due to the generous support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Willson Center for the Humanities & Arts, the Ferman Fund, the McCay Fund, the Franklin Excellence Fund, and the University of Georgia Office of Service-Learning through the David A. and Evelyn A. Knauft Endowment for Service-Learning.
