A compilation of written work from prisoners across South Australia, this online exhibtion provides an opportunity to read prisoner experiences in their own words.

Making and exhibiting artwork is no easy task. It requires skill, creativity and the courage “to put yourself out there” to quote numerous contributors. Some may make you laugh and others may move you to tears.  Either way, people are often surprised by the work in this exhibition. In adopting the role of artists, prisoners challenge themselves to think differently about their relationships with the self, the community, and culture. You are invited to participate in this process.

*Co presented by The Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Centre, UniSA and Neami National.
