The Australian Centre for Student Equity and Success acknowledges Indigenous peoples as the Traditional Owners of the lands on which our campuses are situated. With a history spanning 60,000 years as the original educators, Indigenous peoples hold a unique place in Australia. We recognise the importance of their knowledge and culture, and reflect the principles of participation, equity, and cultural respect in our work. We pay our respects to Elders past, present, and future, and consider it an honour to learn from our Indigenous colleagues, partners, and friends.

An exhibition of artworks by Indigenous and non-Indigenous prisoners from the Southern Queensland Correctional Centre

The exhibition marks the launch of the Australian Government HEPPP-funded Making the Connection project which will create pathways into higher education for Indigenous and non-Indigenous students. The project demonstrates the University of Southern Queensland’s ongoing commitment to creating better outcomes for Indigenous and incarcerated students.

Curated by Simon Mee and Helen Farley, the exhibition gives prisoners the opportunity to exhibit artwork reflecting their innermost feelings. Many of the prisoners involved have only started creating artworks since being incarcerated.
