One of the San Diego Prop. 36 Alumni Association’s goals is to go out into
the community to help everyone understand the struggles that we've had in life!
Grads Reaching Out to Young Artists
I am excited that we have a new way to reach out and to tell the community
about Prop. 36, thanks to Gretchen Burns Bergman, the co-founder and executive
director of A New PATH (www.anewpath.cc).
San Diego Prop. 36 Alumni will be working on a cross-discipline, cross-institutional
collaboration with students from San Diego City College’s philosophy and
art & design departments. The project is staged and directed by Andrea Singer,
a professor of design at SDCC.
This semester her students will be gathering oral histories from Prop. 36 grads
here in the San Diego area. Her students will interview 16 alumni one-on-one
2 to 3 times, in order to build a relationship.
Professor Singer and her class will take our histories and stories and reflect
them in a final art project. The individual projects will take the form of art
books, CD's and other multimedia. The final project will be exhibited at UCSD
with Professor Singer, her students and ourselves.
I’m very proud to be part of this project and work with such a fine group
of young men and women.
All Prop. 36 alumni are where we are today—clean, sober, and back into
society—because treatment instead of incarceration works!
