Stand By Me presents 24 curated artworks from The Torch program. Each artwork represents an artist’s own

exploration of their cultural and personal journey, reflecting the stories they choose to share in their own

voices and their own styles.

The Torch supports First Nations people in Victoria whose lives have been impacted by the criminal justice

system to explore their identity and culture through art and define new pathways for themselves upon release

from prison.

By embracing participants as artists, The Torch provides an avenue for change. The program aids development

of self-esteem, confidence and economic participation, through cultural strengthening and artistic expression.

This represents the importance of supporting and sticking beside each other no matter what.
