Louisiana Correctional Institute for Women Drama Club

ABOUT

The Louisiana Correctional Institute for Women (LCIW) Drama Club was founded in 1996 by Kathy Randels, Artistic Director of ArtSpot Productions, through funding from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Regional Artists Project (RAP) grant. Now entering its 17th year, the Drama Club has been an important outlet for creative expression for over 100 inmates, and has performed for inmate audiences totaling well over 1000. In 2000, ArtSpot Productions invited Kumbuka African Drum and Dance Collective to introduce African dance and culture to the Drama Club. The program has proved to be a vital spiritual asset for the inmate population at LCIW.
