The Presbytery of Philadelphia Leadership Met with Artist from the Restorative Justice Guild

Representation of our leadership spent time with artists from the Restorative Justice Guild of Mural Arts Philadelphia. They are currently in the conceptual stages of the modular mural project, “Proclamation Is Presence,” leveraged by our Covenant Fund and 300th Anniversary Mission Campaign.More details and stories to come. This multi-dimension and interactive install will speak to the call to restorative justice alongside individuals coming out of prison and communities at risk for the prison pipeline. Beginning this fall, we hope to be able to provide opportunities for our churches to engage the creative process, the artists involved, and the broader work to reforming the brokenness of the related institutions and systems. Presently, there is a temporary studio outside the The Barnes Foundation where you can see the work in progress and read more.
