Creatively connecting communities since 2009.


ALIVE INSIDE is a 501(c)3 nonprofit event program bringing prison communities creatively into the conversation of mortality - working to inspire life by unabashedly sourcing our uniquely individual & universally shared experience of being human.


San Francisco Bay Area-based YG2D, in supportive collaboration with the prison system’s health & wellness programs nationwide, offers our incarcerated community a chance to share in the context of a safe & powerful communal listening, featuring words & music from our Bay Area artists. ALIVE INSIDE is an exploration in the prison context of our shared mortal experience, to grieve, bereave & honor what we’ve lost & loved, while all the while making room for being ALIVE where we are with what we have.
