Reconciliation from Inside

An exhibition of artwork by Indigenous detainees from the Alexander Maconochie Centre.

Tuggeranong Arts Centre and ACT Corrective services are pleased to present a collection of paintings by detainees taking part in the AMC art program. The exhibition features 40 paintings and will be held in conjunction with the National Reconciliation Week celebrations. Each painting displayed will be accompanied with some information on the story behind the painting from the artist and a short statement on how this art program is playing a role in their rehabilitation and contributing to their eventual return to the community. The artworks will be available for sale, with the price of each piece determined solely by the artist. Detainees are actively encouraged to either save the proceeds from their sales or provide the funds to their families.

A special Reconciliation Week reception will be held at Tuggeranong Arts Centre on Friday 24 May from 3:00 – 4:00pm.

Free, all welcome.
