Mission Statement

We create educational opportunities in correctional settings where the experiences of teaching and (un)learning challenge assumptions, stigmatization and inequality.


The following values and principles guide how we teach, collaborate and facilitate:

  • We believe in building bridges and solidarity with those who are incarcerated and/or criminalized and those who are not.
  • We foster integrative learning, involving the whole self; mind, spirit, body and emotions.
  • We value the wisdom that comes from lived experience, as well as other sources of learning and knowledge.
  • We aim to create collaborative spaces where critical analysis, dialogue and self-reflection can open up new insights and dismantle preconceptions.
