 Danielle Hakim – Torch Collections Coordinator 

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.

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.

Join this tour of Confined 15 to coincide with National Reconciliation Week 2024 with the theme Now More Than Ever – a compelling reminder that the fight for justice and the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people will — and must — continue.

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

If you can’t make the guided tour the Confined 15 exhibition runs from 
May 3 to June 2,  Monday to Friday 10 am to 5 pm, Saturday and Sunday 1 pm to 5 pm
