Art and change: one in two: juvenile injustice

19 Jan 2015
Description

Every second young person in detention in Australia is Indigenous. The human impact of this confronting statistic is the destruction of families, the weakening of communities and the inadvertent creation of a training ground for young criminals.

This forum looks at the work of arts company Big hART, using its practical approach as a jumping-off point for a discussion of effective ways to tackle the tragic reality of juvenile incarceration.

Presented in partnership with Melbourne Festival.
