      119 Indigenous artists confined to Victorian prisons during the global pandemic have painted a brighter future for themselves, their families, their communities, their Countries and the world as a whole for Future Dreaming… visions of the future.
      The artists, who are remanded across 14 Victorian correctional facilities, are participants in The Torch’s Indigenous Art in Prisons and Community program. They have expressed their hopes and dreams on 30cm x 30cm artworks that will be available to view and purchase online via a scrolling mosaic gallery.

      I hope that the future of all our children will change, and that more people believe it’s time we open our eyes, our hearts, our souls for a better future for all who live and walk upon this country, side-by-side and hear the voices from all around the nation. It is time we stood back-to-back and listened to our Elders past and present – both Indigenous and non-Indigenous – so that we can stand tall, together as one. One voice. One future. One dreaming. This is my dreaming. Sheldon B, Murri people
