24th Annual Exhibition of Art by Michigan Prisoners- Guest Panel

“Beyond the Boom Gate: Orana Arts in Australian Prisons”

  1. Monday March 25 6:00pm
Duderstadt Center (Media Union), Gallery

Macquarie Correctional Centre, based in Wellington, New South Wales (NSW), is Australia’s first pilot of a new model of imprisonment, moving away from punishment to investment in the individual, using education and the arts. This panel will discuss the model from a management, community, artistic, and inmate standpoint.

The pilot’s artistic delivery partner, Orana Arts, is an organization that uses the arts to build engagement. Orana Arts invests in the individual and provides real opportunities for individual and collective change: internally through skills development and externally through their social enterprise hub.
