Confined 15 – Available Works

May 3 to June 2 2024
Share exhibition

With a diverse array of over 400 artworks by more than 380 artists, The Torch is proud to present the fifteenth annual Confined exhibition.

Confined provides a dedicated space for First Nations people who have experienced incarceration in Victoria to share their stories, culture and lived experiences through the artworks they produce. This year’s Confined 15 invites viewers to immerse themselves and experience these stories firsthand. The exhibition serves as a poignant reflection on the disproportionate representation of First Nations Australians in our criminal justice system, underscoring the urgent need for change.

The Torch’s annual Confined exhibition is the key public event within The Torch’s Indigenous Arts in Prisons and Community program, which is committed to reducing reoffending rates by fostering cultural connection through the visual arts. The program aims to improve the cultural, social, emotional and financial wellbeing of participants, empowering them to find new pathways beyond the criminal justice system.

The last week of Confined 15 coincides with National Reconciliation Week (27 May-3 June). The theme for National Reconciliation Week in 2024 is Now More Than Ever and is a compelling reminder to all of us that no matter what, the fight for justice and the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people will — and must — continue.

Explore Confined 15 at the Glen Eira City Council Gallery, Monday to Friday 10 am to 5 pm, Saturday and Sunday 1 pm to 5 pm, and online at thetorch.org.au.

100% of the artwork price goes directly to the artist.
