Prisons aim to both punish and reform, but how do they do that? What’s going on behind their walls? Join us inside Spring Creek for a community conversation with inmates, staff, and the public about preparing for life after prison.
Led by reporter, Anne Hillman, we’ll talk about what’s happening to prepare people for release, and the prison’s role in the larger community.

3600 Bette Cato Avenue, Seward, AK 99664
Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Thank you to the 500 attendees who joined us for two free community screenings held Sept. 13 in Anchorage and Sept. 14 in Palmer. It was a remarkable experience to screen the hour-special of The Vietnam War and share in facilitated discussion with Alaska Humanities Forum.

Ten years in the making, this immersive, multi-faceted narrative features personal testimony from many perspectives. This is the epic story of the Vietnam War as it has never before been told on film.
