Writing Through Fences: A Gallery of Art and Words.

This exhibition was shown at the Kyneton Town Hall alongside the Dax Centre’s show and a local show of art work during Mental Health week in 2015.

The poetry and artwork highlighted the effects of indefinite detention and temporary visas on people’s mental health.

A gallery of art work from this show will be available soon.  In the meantime you can find some of the images here:

Our Beautiful Names is an exhibition of visual art work and poetry by people incarcerated in immigration detention.

Within the detention industry people are called by numbers, not names. This exhibition celebrates individual histories, stories and identity. Here, art making is a matter of survival, of resistance and reclamation of self.

We are calling artists who have experienced Australia’s immigration industry – detention camps/prison camps/concentration camps – to submit visual art work and poetry to be considered for this exhibition.
