Artworks created through The Torch are part of a rehabilitation process that helps build confidence and social capital and can create pathways to economic stability.
The Torch manages the sale of artworks on behalf of all participants in the Indigenous Arts in Prisons and Community Program. 100% of the sale price goes directly to the artist.
Indigenous men are 15 times more likely to go to prison than non-Indigenous men and Indigenous women are 21 times more likely to go to prison than non-Indigenous women.
The Torch provides support to Indigenous offenders and ex-offenders in Victoria through art, cultural and arts vocational programs.
By embracing program participants as artists rather than offenders, The Torch provides an avenue to change.
