PCAP offers programming year-round that brings the University of Michigan community and those impacted by the justice system into creative collaboration for mutual learning and growth.
The Linkage Community is an alliance of artists and creators with lived experience in prison who are interested in deepening their craft in spaces of radical acceptance and authentic connections.
Every year, PCAP puts on its annual exhibition featuring paintings, sculptures, drawings, and more from unique artists across 25 Michigan prisons. This exposition is the world’s largest display of its kind, where underground art meets academic exhibition.
There are many different ways to get involved in PCAP for students, volunteers, formerly incarcerated folks, and the families and friends of people currently incarcerated.
