Event description
Join us for a special First Nations Storytime and explore Banj Banj/nawnta.

About this event

Banj Banj/nawnta is an exhibition representing the unique friendship between two female artists in The Torch program, Thelma and Stacey. Thelma and Stacey produce strong, bold, colourful paintings and share an inspiring artistic and cultural journey. The Torch delivers the Statewide Indigenous Arts in Prison and Community Program, which aims to reduce the disproportionately high rates of Indigenous incarceration and recidivism in Victoria.

The program supports the development of self-esteem, confidence and resilience to the re-offending cycle through cultural strengthening and artistic expression.
