There is a disproportionate amount of indigenous people in the Australian prison system in north west of New South Wales, and all around Australia. But why? What does that statistic represent and what does it mean?

This is an UoN iLEAD sponsored event!

Find out when you come along to screening of Inside Out: Indigenous imprisonment in Australia to explore the world of the Australian legal system. This documentary tells the story of Uncle Isaac Gordon: a pastor and former prison guard, who aspired to slash the number of Aboriginal youths in prison, and provide alternative "healing centres" to help young people around NSW get back on their feet.

After the screening, you can stick around to hear the perspective of Craig Eade, a proud Aboriginal man and solicitor at Legal Aid with extensive experience within this specialised field.

Bring your friends along to the screening and grab a bite to eat (we will be providing FREE FOOD): this event is totally free! We welcome everyone to come along and explore this unique insight into the Australian prison system.
