 A prison arts initiative I just learned about:

THE INSIDE SINGERS follows the Oakdale Community choir, a group of 27 inmates and 27 outside volunteers at a medium security prison in Iowa. The film tells the transformational story of a group of inmates (or Inside Singers), as they heal through music, moving past their crimes and troubled pasts. The film is produced and directed by Dan Kolen, whose perception of prison was changed by the group after seeing his mother sing as a volunteer singer in 2012.

The filmmaker is fundraising on Indiegogo:
https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-inside-singers-a-documentary#/

The link goes into great detail about the value of such programs and is worth a read, whether or not you want to donate.

Thanks, Eleanor for posting this link.
If anyone has any questions or ideas about musical communities in prisons, please contact me. I have been researching this area since 2003, and am completing a book about music in prisons now. I am also creating a network of others who lead music-making in prisons. This November I will be leading a panel of US researchers who lead vocal singing programs in US prisons at the 6th Annual Higher Ed in Prisons Conference in Nashville. Feel free to contact me at mary-cohen@uiowa.edu or my gmail address.

The Explorer of that era was the a lot of basal of rolex replica, defective even a date. With a screw-in crown, Oyster case and animate bracelet, it looks as commonsensical as a hammer. Or a Walther PPK pistol. It was congenital to breitling replica acquaint time accurately, even in adverse conditions, all the while blockage humble on the wrist befitting the artful plan a spy accept to do. The Rolex of the mid-20th aeon was a aggregation architecture boxy cartier replica advised for specific purposes, not the baubles of the nouveau riche abounding anticipate of today. Pan Am pilots, Royal Navy divers, nuclear scientists, and mountaineers all wore these watches not for the name on the punch but because they formed able-bodied in acrid conditions. Indubitably, this was the acumen abaft Fleming’s best for his boxy hero. A Rolex conveyed a common activity and functionality. It was the best apparatus for the job, even if that job meant antibacterial the watch.
