Confluence Arts Collective strives to create moments of community convergence, self-determination and self-expression for criminalized people.


We recognize that criminalized people are disproportionately those living in poverty, Indigenous, racialized, queer, transgender, women, and themselves victims of crime. We aim to open up humanizing spaces to explore and articulate who we all are outside of, and because of, criminal convictions, social marginalizations, and situations of incarceration. We also have a lot of fun.
