welcome.

The Breaking Point Project seeks to create social change through storytelling and art. By sharing the experiences of incarcerated disabled and/or chronically ill people, then bringing those stories to life through art, we hope to impress upon viewers the urgency of prison abolition and inhumanity of the current criminal-legal system.

Thank you for joining us. Explore the site, then find out how you can get involved below.

TELL YOUR STORY

This project would not be possible without stories. If you are disabled, d/Deaf, neurodivergent, Mad, chronically ill, etc. and have experienced incarceration, reach out to share your experiences. Modest compensation is available.

CONTRIBUTE YOUR ART

Our mission would also be impossible without our fantastic artists. We encourage any disabled, d/Deaf, neurodivergent, Mad, chronically ill, etc. artists to contact us about participating in the project. Modest compensation is available.
