Future Dreaming … visions of the future is an exhibition of artworks created by Indigenous artists within Victorian prisons during 2022.
Our In Prison artists continue to be impacted by long lockdown periods as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Future Dreaming gives these artists a chance to envision their future, and bring that future to life on a 30 x 30 cm canvas.
Over 250 participants across 14 Victorian correctional facilities embraced this challenge. This exhibition gives artists an avenue to explore the future they see for themselves, their community, their Country, or even the world as a whole.
Future Dreaming … visions of the future will go live on Thursday 27th October 2022. All the artworks are for sale and can be purchased online on The Torch website.
All artworks will be priced between $200 – $300.
100% of the artwork price goes directly to the artist.
This painting shows a strong, tall kangaroo who is looking back at his past and time spent in prison. He is ready to move forward with the support of all the brothers he met on his journey and family on the outside. He knows in his heart this time he will succeed! One country, one home, one mob.
