1. Inmate Profile While IncarceratedCircleDumb acknowledges the unique talents and potential of each incarcerated individual. Through our program, we will provide inmates with the opportunity to explore their artistic talents, fostering creativity and self-expression. By engaging in various artistic practices inspired by Dadaism, Surrealism, and Outsider artists, inmates can develop new skills, expand their intellectual horizons, and build self-confidence during incarceration.
2. Transitional Period Upon ReleaseWe understand the challenges inmates face upon reintegration into society. CircleDumb aims to ease this transition by offering support and guidance. We will provide access to resources such as job training, counseling, and mentorship to help former inmates navigate the complexities of life outside prison. Our goal is to empower them with the tools they need to build a positive and fulfilling future.
3. Online Shop and Business OpportunitiesCircleDumb will establish an online shop where inmates can showcase and sell their artwork. This platform not only serves as a means of income during incarceration but also lays the foundation for entrepreneurship upon release. We will provide training in marketing, financial management, and e-commerce, empowering individuals to turn their artistic endeavors into sustainable businesses.
4. The Art of Recovery - ShareWell SessionAs an integral part of our program, we offer "The Art of Recovery" ShareWell sessions. These sessions delve into the therapeutic aspects of art, helping inmates cope with the emotional challenges of incarceration and reintegration. By tapping into the power of artistic expression, we aim to support the recovery process and enhance mental well-being. Get started by requesting an artist profile for your incarcerated loved one.
