ABOUT PROGRAM OUR TEAM EVENTS MEDIA & ARCHIVES SUPPORT US

The Torch has two objectives that it seeks to achieve through the Indigenous Arts in Prisons & Community program.

1. Through art, cultural & arts vocation support, provide a forum for cultural exploration, expression & strengthening for members of the Indigenous community who are incarcerated and;

2. Through supporting creative skills & connection to culture, work with participants to find a new way forward on their return to community and reduce recidivism.

You can support the program and the artists by purchasing their artwork. Post-release program participants receive the full sale value directly. Proceeds from artwork sales for participating artists still in prison are held in trust by Corrections Victoria until release. Access to funds at this crucial time can greatly assist the community reintegration process for artists.

The artworks here are featured in the current exhibiton Yannae Wirrate Weelam, which can be seen at the Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Centre, Museum Victoria, until early November 2016. To enquire about these and other works for sale please call (+61) (03) 9042 1236 or send an email enquiry to artistic@thetorch.org.au
