Exhibition on ‘school to prison pipeline’ at GPS

The relationship between incarceration and education is a complex current issue.

Through October 26, UNCG’s Greensboro Project Space will host “None of the Above,” an exhibition that “explores the intersection of race, poverty, educational policies, and incarceration through the voices of those most affected: students, teachers, administrators, parents, attorneys, juvenile justice officials, the incarcerated, school resource officers, advocates, and others.” Learn about what is called the “school-to-prison pipeline.” The project has been three years in the making by the Hidden Voices collective, and is based on interviews and workshops in more than 20 counties. 

In addition to the exhibition, on October 25 at 5:30 p.m. Dr. Anne Parsons, UNCG’s director of Public History, will lead a discussion about incarceration and mental health. The event is called “Care and Custody.” Parsons will
discuss her new book “From Asylum to Prison.” And Tiffany Bullard of Benevolence Farm will speak about efforts to
connect people leaving prison with mental health services.

There will also be a closing performance at the project space on October 26.
