The Torch

Since 2011 The Torch has been providing art, cultural and arts industry support to Indigenous offenders and ex-offenders in Victoria through its Indigenous Arts in Prisons and Community program.

The program supports the development of self-esteem, confidence and resilience, through cultural strengthening and artistic expression. The Torch assists artists to reconnect with culture, earn income from art sales (with 100% of the artwork price going directly to the artist), foster new networks and to pursue educational and creative industry avenues upon their release.

By embracing program participants as artists rather than offenders, The Torch provides an avenue to change.

The Torch Gallery is open by appointment.
