This year’s artwork is once again by First Nations artist, Renay Barker-Mulholland.
ID: A digital collage, with Renay, a First Nations woman, laying back on her power wheelchair as the central figure inside a bottle, inside a monolithic rock. On top there is an old, yellowed lightbulb and eyes dotted around the figure. There is a hand on each side of the image, and going vertically down, in black text on tiles the word, Sick and above it a black graphic crown. On the right hand side the same style and the word sovereign, with a black snake above the hand. A bright yellow light hovers just above Renay's solar plexus.

Last week the Beyond the Bars program teams broadcast live from six Victorian prisons. We shared the mic with First Nations women and men across the state for NAIDOC Week 2023. You can now listen back to all the broadcasts and hear the insights direct from First Nations people in the system. We look forward to a day when we don't need to go into prisons to give First Nations people a voice.
