The Box: An Evening of Art and Conversation Mini-Doc


On August 22, 2016, playwright Sarah Shourd and solitary survivors David Sanchez, Johnny Ortiz, and James Anderson gathered for a community conversation around solitary confinement.


With the healing power of art infused throughout, the event focused on the health effects of solitary confinement and brought to light important questions around how we can best support the health of all Californians, including incarcerated people and their loved ones. The event was presented in partnership with The Arts for Incarcerated Youth Network, Santa Cruz Barrios Unidos, Rhythm Arts Alliance, Street Poets, Inc., Anti-Recidivism Coalition, and The Unusual Suspects Theater Company.
