The Torch

Since 2011 The Torch has been providing art, cultural and arts industry support to Indigenous artists currently in, or recently released, from Victorian prisons 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, with the aim of reducing the disproportionately high rates of Indigenous incarceration and recidivism in Victoria. 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.

The Torch Gallery is open by appointment.
