The Torch CEO Kent Morris in the exhibition

No Turning Back: Artworks from The Torch

The Torch supports current and former Indigenous offenders in Victoria through its Indigenous Arts in Prisons and Community program. The program provides art, cultural strengthening and arts vocational support to Indigenous inmates and parolees who are greatly over represented in the criminal justice system. Opportunities to create new pathways through art and culture and reduce recidivism are central to the program.

Kent Morris is a Barkindji man, a graduate of the Victorian College of the Arts and an alumnus of the Wesfarmers Indigenous Arts Leadership Program. He has over 20 years experience as a practicing artist and curator and has specialist knowledge of, and connections within, the Indigenous Australian arts and culture industry. Kent has a strong interest in the educational and healing potential of the arts and in 2011 joined The Torch to design, develop and deliver the Statewide Indigenous Arts in Prisons and Community program
