About Us

Rehabilitation Through The Arts was founded in Sing Sing Correctional Facility in 1996, to help fill the void left by cuts in public funding for higher education. Today, RTA offers workshops and productions in five men's, women's, maximum and medium security New York State prisons, building life skills through theatre, dance, poetry, music, voice and visual arts. RTA serves as a safe, structured environment where creativity is nurtured and a sense of community is built.
