Can beauty be found buried behind concrete and steel, veiled from the rest of society? College of Southern Idaho instructor Shane Brown and Project Flux director Lydia Sakolsky-Basquill ventured into the Idaho State Correctional Center to teach creative writing workshops to inmates. Explore how the introduction of creativity and artistic expression affected the lives of these men fettered by iron bars and the deeds of their pasts. The works the inmates created—poetry, scripts, memoirs, short stories—were displayed and translated into choreography performed by Project Flux Dance.
