Insider Art: Education
05 December 2015 – 28 February 2016


Western Australian prisoners access a range of education programs intended to enhance rehabilitation, reduce reoffending and contribute to community safety on release. These programs encompass vocational training, adult basic education and external tertiary courses and can open up a world of opportunities post-incarceration. The Insider Art: Education exhibition held at the Fremantle Prison gallery showcases the artwork and creative writing of some of these incarcerated students.

This exhibition is a joint initiative between the Department of Corrective Services and the State Heritage Office (Fremantle Prison). Not only will this exhibition give viewers a glimpse into prison life and education, but also allow a greater understanding of the issues and ideas of those incarcerated.
