Oakhill Prison Humanities Project

Created in 2013, the Oakhill Prison Humanities Project supports the work of faculty members and graduate students teaching humanities courses at the Oakhill Correctional Institution in Oregon, Wisconsin. Projects include the 2016 “Artists in Absentia” exhibition of writings, art, music, poetry, and dramatic works by Oakhill inmates. Faculty and students in UW-Madison’s Theatre for Youth recently led readings of Evgenii Shvarts’s The Dragon with incarcerated people at Oakhill. Find more information about the Oakhill Humanities Project on its website.

You can also support the project by donating to the Oakhill Humanities Project Fund.
