It’s carrying an important message
As one of the eight recipients of the 2019 Yarra Trams Community Partnerships Program, The Torch has chosen to use this valuable brand exposure as an opportunity to shine a light on one of our country’s most harrowing statistics — the rate of incarceration amongst Indigenous Australians.
First Nations Australians make up less than 3% of the Australian population yet represent 27% of the national prison population.
We invite anyone who wishes to show support and to help facilitate change to do so by making a donation or by purchasing a piece of our program participants’ art.
100% of the proceeds from the sale of an art piece goes back to the artists. This means that when you buy a piece of art, you’re not only supporting a vocational pathway for our artists, but you’re giving them the tools they need to make a positive change.
