Confined 15 includes artworks by First Nations artists currently in or recently released from prisons across Victoria. Featuring a diverse selection of over 400 artworks by more than 380 artists, Confined 15 presents a strong visual metaphor for the over-representation of Indigenous people in the criminal justice system and showcases the power of culture in the process of healing and reconnection.
