The Medea Project

Location:  San Francisco, CA
United States
Project Description: 

The Media Project is organized by The Culture Odyssey, an organization that supports the creative practices of Rhodessa Jones and her Co-Artistic Director Idris Achamoor. The project creates performances for womens prisons that are intended to serve as a method of rehabilitation and awareness of what their lives are like behind bars. Jones created this project to show the public how women are treated during their time served and the feelings they have about themselves and the outside world. 

Pieces by the Medea Project reflect the constantly changing issues that affect incarcerated women including reproductive rights and HIV/AIDS awareness.
