BEYOND PRISON: Stories of Transformation from the Inside

bars and flag

Beyond Prison, an immersive collection of documentary stories curated by Kalliopeia Foundation, offers a multimedia experience of the emerging field of transformative prison programming. While efforts are underway to redress a broken US prison system, the stories in Beyond Prison explore seven innovative program models – including the MBA Project – working right now to restore human dignity to the prison experience, and bring about deep-seated change in the lives of incarcerated men and women. Beyond Prison’s stories – in the form of short documentary films, photography, animated infographics, and articles – examine some of what’s possible in prison rehabilitation, and call attention and support to a new generation of programs that integrate essential human values as a key component of wider criminal justice reform. Together, these stories offer a unique glimpse into what prison could be: a place of transformation from the inside out.
