How to registerplease email PCW Community Service Chair John Veras '11 with your name, class year/Princeton affiliation and cell phone.

Thanks for registering for this event at your earliest convenience and notifying John if you would like to bring family/friends, as JAC has an indoor event space limited in size. 

Additional information: JAC is a nationally-focused 501c3 non-profit that unites teaching artists, arts advocates, and artists who are or have been incarcerated – and their allies. They provide opportunities for the nearly 400 incarcerated artists in their growing network to share their work both through their own platforms and by facilitating connections to opportunities offered by partner organizations such as Iron City Magazine, PEN America’s Prison Writing Program, and MoMA PS1. Examples of art shared with JAC, and displayed by the organization, can be found here. All letter-writing materials, and instructions, will be provided by the on-site staff. Children and teenagers are welcome to participate, with parental supervision.
