The Torch is recognising 10 years of exhibiting artworks by Indigenous artists currently in or recently released from prisons in Victoria.
Confined is the key annual event of The Torch’s Indigenous Arts in Prisons and Community program. Now in its 10th year, the Confined exhibition provides Indigenous offenders and ex-offenders with an opportunity to connect with the community and to promote the practice of culture in rehabilitation. It also serves to highlight the issue of over-representation of Indigenous people in the criminal justice system.
Supported by the City of Port Philip, Confined plays an important role in supporting Indigenous offenders and ex-offenders to tell their stories, connect with the community, develop arts networks and reintegrate back into the community.
