Healing Pieces: Offerings of Art, Expression and Nature

October 24 - December 10, 2020

Project Witness is a partnership between the Campaign for the Fair Sentencing of Youth (CFSY), YouTube, and Google using immersive VR (virtual reality) and Google Lens technologies to build awareness of the conditions of childhood incarceration. Project Witness features the stories of six individuals who were incarcerated as children and depicts the extreme forms of punishment imposed on incarcerated children in the United States.

Through a walk, viewers can use their phone via their Google app to see the experience of prison through the eyes of a child, with narration from people who experienced childhood incarceration firsthand.
