Incorrigibles is a transmedia art project that collects and tells the stories of ‘incorrigible’ girls in the United States over the last 100 years, employing the past as a guide for the present. Drawing on the personal narratives of incarcerated young women, the work investigates juvenile justice and social services for young women.
Our research begins with the New York State Training School for Girls in Hudson (1904-1974), an institution that today we would call a juvenile detention center. Did you or someone you know spend time there? Or perhaps at another institution?
