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.
Beyond the Bars shares the airwaves with those who are incarcerated bringing you opinions, songs and insights from First Nations men and women in the Victorian prison system. Be sure to tune in daily from 11am Monday to Friday 3-7 July to hear directly from those on the inside as we celebrate NAIDOC Week 2023. Original artwork above by Troy, Marngoneet, 2023.
