Reflections with Mel Nieves

Our third annual Reflections event will be held Monday, September 23rd at Davenport Studios in Manhattan. Playwright Mel Nieves (who is pictured in the poster by Chris Kateff) will share his experience as the 2013 Voices Inside/Out Playwright-in-Residence at Northpoint Training Center outside Danville, Kentucky. You’ll also hear the work of some of the participating inmates — their powerful, moving stories about life on both sides of the bars. And you’ll have a chance to ask questions about arts education in prison. Come and learn more about our exciting program and celebrate another grand year.

Save the Date! Reflections with Mel Nieves September 23, 2013


NYC-based playwright Mel Nieves (pictured front row, far right) spent the last week of June in Danville, Kentucky as part of Voices Inside/Out third annual playwriting residency. He taught master classes in playwriting to the prisoner-playwrights circle at Northpoint Training Center, a medium security prison.

On Monday, September 23rd, Mel along with Voices Inside/Out co-founders Synge Maher and Lanie Zipoy will present the wonderful revelations that happened during his residency as well as snippets of the inmates’ work and how this program is changing lives on both sides of the bars.

Join us for an awe-inspiring night that proves imagination has no barriers. 

Reflections with Mel Nieves will be free and open to the public. We will announce the NYC location very soon. RSVP to to reserve your seats.
