“Our great fear is that they will deport us without giving us any notice and without us having any communication with our families or lawyer” –Excerpt from letter

ARTIST STATEMENT: “I want the audience to capture the journey this family has gone through – from the violence they experienced in their home country and natural desire for change, to the courage it takes to move from somewhere unsafe and come to the US – and then the juxtaposition of the “hopes” for a safe haven versus the reality of the situation.” -Rose Jaffe

Visions From The Inside is a collaborative project between 15 visual artists and detained migrants at Karnes Detention Center.

CultureStrike in partnership with Mariposas Sin Fronteras, End Family Detention and 15 artists from across the country, brings you Visions From The Inside, a visual art project inspired by letters penned by detained migrants.

By visually illustrating these letters we aim to bring awareness and a better sense of the realities that people are experiencing inside of for-profit detention facilities, what led them to migrate in the first place and, most importantly, highlighting the resiliency of the migrant spirit.
