Talk about Teaching at San Quentin Prison

If you’re in San Francisco, consider joining us April 10th

For the latest Creative Mean convening, I will be talking on the theme of Relationships. I’ll be talking about my teaching and learning in the classroom at San Quentin. I’ll reflect on how the ideas about photographs that my students and I hold have shifted and shaped. There’s no scoop here, just observations. There’s no drama, mostly quiet gratitude.

Writer Rita Bullwinkel and artist Sam Vernon are speaking too. 15-minutes per person, followed by a Q+A/panel chat with the audience.


Event is 6pm-8pm on Wednesday, April 10th, at Heath Newsstand, San Francisco. Here’s a map. Here’s a Facebook event page.

It’s gonna set you back $15 so I advise you get there bang on 6 and get your fill of Tartine scran, Fort Point booze and chocolate before you’re asked to sit at 6:30. Dang, they’re even giving away Aesop soap, to which I was a convert in 2017.
