Sunday Platform with Charles Moore: The Soul of Rehabilitation Through the Arts

May 26 @ 11:00 am - 12:15 pm

Free and open to the public, in-person and online!

Charles Moore will give a brief intro of himself and RTA, and present a short film called, “The Soul of RTA” which showcases the RTA’s arts-in-prison program. He will then open it up to an informal discussion with the audience members.

Launched at Sing Sing Correctional Facility in 1996, Rehabilitation Through the Arts (RTA) is a world leader in arts-in-corrections teaching communication, collaboration, problem-solving and other critical life skills through a unique mix of art forms.

With our new reentry program, Reimagining Myself®, RTA prepares incarcerated people approaching release for the social and emotional challenges they will likely face when transitioning back to their communities.

Now operating in Westchester, Ulster, Sullivan, Dutchess and Erie counties, RTA is expanding its transformative work to prisons throughout NYS, including facilities in under-resourced areas.

RTA’s ongoing success is proof that restorative, cost effective programming works. Less than 3% of RTA members return to prison, compared to the national recidivism rate of 60%.
