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. Pictured: Loddon Prison broadcast team L-R Amos, Karina, Jody, Tash, Gab, Chris, Bart, Mercedes and Dale.
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.
