We believe that everyone has a stake in ending prisons, as they disrupt every part of a community - from the budget to our brothers, sisters, parents & children that make a safe and vibrant world. The Prison Industrial Complex is designed to dehumanize people, and in fighting for those caged - we become human again. 


Beyond Boxes work is made real in many forms, as art takes many forms - from small chapbook publishings, open writing workshops, power-building, moving performances and legislative action. Through vulnerable & honest collaborations, we seek to connect people from all corners of communities to create a shared investment in restorative justice, and healing incarceration. 

Beyond Boxes is a grassroots storytelling collective based in Southwest Michigan that strives to claim power and healing for all people impacted by incarceration.
