COURTYARD PANEL PROJECT
South Coast Correctional Centre Inmates
The South Coast Correctional Centre commenced operation in 2010 catering primarily to inmates from the South Coast, between Helensburgh and the Victorian border. Inmates are encouraged to develop increased levels of self-responsibility and to improve motivation to participate in offence-related, transitional and resettlement programs. Opportunities are provided for their participation in education, work, vocational training and programs.
Signalling the beginning of ongoing collaborations between South Coast Correctional Centre and Shoalhaven City Arts Centre, you are invited to the first exhibition of panel artworks lining the walls of the gallery courtyard. Each panel showcases works from inmates at the centre in South Nowra under the education program.
The Courtyard Gallery exhibition is a hint of what is to come in 2015.
We thank all participating inmates and invite family, friends and visitors to enjoy the artworks while sitting in the Art Centre Courtyard during the summer months.
The Shoalhaven City Arts Centre acknowledges the involvement of Tanya Bennett and Randall Sinnamon in bringing this project to the public.
