Now in its eighth year, CONFINED features artworks by Indigenous artists currently in or recently released from prison in Victoria. High levels of incarceration is a deeply felt social issue amongst Victoria’s Aboriginal communities. CONFINED has proven to positively impact on the prisoners and their families and assists in reducing recidivism rates. The exhibition not only aims to support Indigenous offenders with an opportunity to connect with the community and to promote the practice of culture in rehabilitation but to highlight the issue of over-representation of Indigenous people in the criminal justice system. The artworks explore issues of identity and connection to Culture and Country. Many of the artists are first time exhibitors. All works in the exhibition are available for sale in line with the Victorian Governments Aboriginal Art Policy Model.

The Torch supports Indigenous offenders and ex-offenders through its Indigenous Arts in Prisons and Community program. Central to the program is cultural learning, strengthening, expression and sharing.
Dhumbadha Munga (talking knowledge) looks at the two-way relationship between the arts workers and the artists they support. Through dhumbadha munga, the artists learn, develop and reinforce their cultural identity to express and share their stories.
As it has done so for generations, Indigenous Culture remains alive through talking and sharing knowledge.
