Creative Justice is 4Culture’s new arts-based alternative to incarceration for young people in King County. Through collaboration with mentor artists, participants consider the root causes of incarceration (as they intersect with racism, classism and other oppressions) and focus on the positive role youth voice can have in building a more just and equitable society.

Creative Justice builds community with youth most impacted by the school-to-prison-(to-deportation) pipeline. Participants and mentor artists work together to examine the root causes of incarceration, like systemic racism and other forms of oppression, creating art that articulates the power and potential of our communities.

While the number of youth incarcerated in the King County Youth Service (Detention) Center has decreased, racial disparities still persist. In 2014, nearly 75% of youth held in juvenile detention in King County were youth of color. 4Culture and a cohort of community partners developed Creative Justice as innovative arts-based approach to ending racial disproportionality and youth incarceration.
