The Circle Project was created in 2019 by filmmaker Brenda Longfellow and restorative justice advocate Brenda Morrison, as an evolving collaboration of artists and formerly incarcerated women dedicated to producing provocative art together. We are inspired by Indigenous modalities of community based justice and are committed to imagining alternatives to the violence and dehumanization of carceral systems and logics.

Broadly accessible online and disseminated through multiple platforms, our art projects use imagination, storytelling, performance and play to generate rich and intimate encounters with the complex and layered experience of women who are reclaiming their lives on the outside.
