Hosted by The Torch, be sure to attend the Virtual Exhibition Launch of Confined 11 on Thursday 14 May 2020 from 6-9pm. This launch will be brought directly into your home in a new and engaging online format. A creative bunch, The Torch provide art, cultural and arts vocational support to Indigenous offenders and ex-offenders in Victoria. Their aim is to reduce the rate of reoffending by encouraging the exploration of identity and culture through art programs to define new pathways upon release.

Pop the date and time in your diary and join the virtual launch. Be sure to stay in touch via the event page as it'll get updated with the link to their live Facebook event and other details closer to launch date as they lock everything in.


The Confined 11 exhibition will continue after launch date (14 May) from 15 May to 7 June 2020 from 6am to 11pm each day. The Torch's BIGGEST exhibition ever, it showcases artworks by Indigenous artists currently in or recently released from prisons in Victoria. Three hundred artworks from 286 artists, this exhibition is a strong visual metaphor for the over-representation of Aboriginal people in the criminal justice system. For more information, SEE HERE.

A key annual public event, the artworks are a part of a rehabilitation process that helps build confidence, social capital, economic stability and reconnecting with the community. It's a platform that plays an important role for the artists to tell their stories and develop arts networks while reintegrating back into society. 100% of the sale price of all artwork goes directly to the artist. Be sure to pick up a few unique works of Aboriginal art.
