For N+T 2017 is The Year of the Woman. Our mission in curating and creating work is to champion feminist expressions in the realm of public art by supporting women artists, lifting up community voices, and exploring the power of female resilience and creativity. Since December 2016, we have enthusiastically supported five female artists – most who’d proudly declare themselves feminists – with financial and technical assistance in the early stages of their concepts for complex and large-scale projects.

Artist: Ann Lewis - in collaboration with residents a local reentry facility for incarcerated women run by Community Resources for Justice.
Where: 808 Tremont Street, Boston
When: June 2017
Why: To share stories and experiences from incarcerated women and de-stigmatize their transitions back into their lives and their histories.
“...it feels imperative to use our collaborative talents to highlight, honor, and support a community that is often invisible. There are people here and now that are navigating through the often complicated and challenging system. Women, in particular, who are caught up in our correctional systems are often overlooked.”
