Founded by Carnegie Hall and the Arts for Incarcerated Youth Network in Los Angeles, the Create Justice initiative hosted four national forums from 2017 to 2019, bringing together a diverse group of artists, young people, policymakers, funders, nonprofits, and researchers from across the country. Forum participants explored how the power of the arts can be leveraged for youth justice and reform, considering the possibilities for collective action and impact.
To learn more and access online resources that emerged from the forums, visit the Create Justice website. These resources were made available online in an effort to advance work at the intersection of the arts and youth justice that continues beyond the Create Justice initiative.
