A COLLECTION OF INMATE WRITING
"A Master Status is a social position that tends to be among the most important positions people occupy. It is at the core of social identity and influences their roles and behaviours. Occupation is often a Master Status because it forms such an important part of people's identities and affects their other roles, such as family, friends, where they live etc. Gender, age and race are also common Master Statuses." (Crossman, 2016)
A COLLECTION OF INMATE ARTWORK
Displaying the Art and Writing from the incarcerated population functions as an antithesis to the strict formalities presented in the definition of one's Master Status. The Master Status of someone who is imprisoned shifts into labels such as; low-life, thief or someone who cannot be trusted. This Blog is a way for incarcerated individuals to release themselves from the labelled bondage and prove to the world that they are indeed creative artists with unique insight into realms which we could not have imagined ourselves.
