Twenty years have passed since the doors of Kingston Prison for Women (P4W) closed, a landmark institution that has since faded from the headlines. In October 2023, a group of passionate individuals gathered to connect, reflect, and discuss the legacy of P4W and the broader impacts of incarceration on women.
We invite submissions reflecting on questions raised by the twentieth-plus anniversary of the closure of P4W.
We’d like to extend our sincere gratitude to Steph Crosier and The Kingston Whig Standard for their enlightening coverage of Prisoners Justice Day.
An art exhibition of prisoner artworks will be on display at the Pumphouse Museum from July 4 – September 2, 2023 in partnership with the P4W memorial collective and the City of Kingston.
