Beyond the Bars 2024 - artwork by Samuel, Gunaikurnai/Wirangu/Kokatha

Beyond the Bars is Australia’s only live prison radio series giving voice to First Nations inmates in Victorian jails. Across nearly 20 hours of broadcasting, we get to hear directly from those incarcerated about the issues that are important to them, along with their shout outs to family and friends. Listen live, or later. Artwork by Samuel, Gunaikurnai/Wirangu/Kokatha.
