Art Factory / Decarcerate video premier and 100 Days Instead of Prisons Launch Party

PhillyCAM @ 699 Ranstead Street in Center City Philadelphia.

Join us for a video premier and the launch of the 100 Days Instead of Prisons Campaign!

This summer, Art Factory collaborated with Decarcerate PA and PhillyCAM for six weeks to make three short stop-motion videos to help people realize the grand actuality of the Prison Industrial Complex. PhillyCAM was gracious enough to let Art Factory use their equipment and their space while we planned, filmed, recorded and edited our 3 videos. Decarcerate PA helped us clear up the clouds by telling us more about what they do as well as the political and community results and consequences of mass incarceration. We hope that these pieces will shed light on the current situation, and inspire people to join the movement to stop the prison industry and reinvest in the community.

The "100 Days Instead of Prisons" campaign is a social media effort designed to help us envision a world where resources are directed towards community needs and away from mass incarceration. Each day from now until December 31, we will post an image from our collective imagination of what we would build instead of prisons. We call on Pennsylvania legislators and Governor Corbett to cancel all ongoing prison construction and resolve to make 2014 a year of no new prisons!
