What We Do
BAR NONE offers incarcerated people, formerly incarcerated people, and their family members, opportunities for healing through the arts.
BAR NONE is a multidisciplinary arts initiative based in New Orleans, LA. BAR NONE offers incarcerated people, formerly incarcerated people, and their family members, opportunities for healing through the arts.
We utilize art’s unique ability to stimulate emotional health, personal growth, and supplementary financial gain. We offer art workshops, music production classes, artist residencies, and opportunities to exhibit and sell artwork. We facilitate critical community dialogue on the intersection of art and prison abolition.
Our ultimate goal is to improve quality of life and emotional health among populations directly impacted by our criminal legal system.
