The Restory Justice Project

Artist: The Restory Justice Project
New Orleans, LA

The Restory Justice Project will center around the history of women’s incarceration in New Orleans. One arm of the project will be a guided walking tour, led by formerly incarcerated women, that addresses historical sites and issues that are still present today. Another platform will be a digital site that expands outside the limits of a walkable tour, and include oral histories and current and historical photographs. In addition, gardens will be planted as centers of engagement that focus on the conditions of women who give birth in prison and grow medicine to distribute to incarcerated women.

Award Amount: $1500 Research & Development
