Thank you for your support of Flyaway Productions!
THOUGHT INTO ACTION for 2021
Flyaway remains committed to artist as activist intentions. In 2021, we actualized two important activist contributions this year. We built a multi-racial coalition with artists and activists locally and across the country in service of decarceration. We are proud to have co-created an art show of incarcerated artists from San Quentin Prison and co-hosted a panel discussion on Black and Jewish voices against mass incarcerationwith Museum of African Diaspora, Prison Renaissance, and Bend the Arc Jewish Action.
Moving forward with The Decarceration Trilogy, Flyaway embraces prison abolition as a moral stance. Our third installment in the Trilogy, The Apparatus of Repair brings focus to uncomfortable territory—the need for accountability for violence and violence against women, with the recognition that prison does not inherently curb violence.
As we move into 2021, we recognize the stronghold of white supremacy that shows up in our political system. We recognize art as vital to the health of our democracy and to the abolition of structural racism. With your help, we make a difference. We drive awareness about the issue of incarceration. We invite spectacle, dialogue, and invention. Your support of Flyaway Productions is needed now more than ever, and we appreciate you for sustaining our work.
