Home and Away

Spring 2015

California's prison population went up by 500% between 1882 and 2000. Peralta Hacienda's next exhibit and story collection initiative 'Home and Away,' to begin this spring, will explore the effect of mass incarceration in our community. Please contact Linda Norton if you would like to participate by sharing your story or helping in any way: We need your input, if you have any experiences to share. The Creative Work Fund funded this effort, collaboration between writer Norton, Peralta Hacienda staff, and community members to create a book and the exhibit. We are seeking matching funding. - Literary artist Linda Norton, be in Residence on Fridays starting in April to speak to community.
