New York Foundation for the Arts (Brooklyn, NY 11201-8301)
Alison Cornyn (Project Director: June 2016 to present)


Development of a multiplatform project that examines the history of detention facilities and incarceration of young women from the early 20th century to the present.

Incorrigibles is a transmedia public memory project that looks at youth incarceration, specifically as it concerns young women from the early 1900’s to present day. The project plans to use multiple media sharing platforms, social networking, a website and podcasts to collect, display and distribute documents, photographs, films, oral histories, newspaper articles, stories and participatory voices related to the history of incarcerated girls and young women—in particular, young women’s detention facilities and training schools.
