The Torch is proud to partner with the Australian Community Support Organisation (ACSO) to host the 10th International Criminal Justice Conference. Held over three days at Federation Square, the conference invites guests to participate in a critical conversation to create solutions for a more just and effective criminal justice system.
The Torch presents a special exhibition of works, featuring 17 artworks from 16 artists in our program.
Since 2011 The Torch has been providing art, cultural and arts industry support to Indigenous artists currently in, or recently released, from Victorian prisons through its Indigenous Arts in Prisons and Community program.
Every footstep I take now is connected to the earth. I’d never had much self-confidence but Culture has given me a greater understanding of life. Without it I would have gotten out of jail without direction and guidance. I believe in myself now and found who I really am.
-Ash Thomas, 2022
