Description

In November 2010, The Queensland Prison Legal Service conducted an Art Auction "Last Works" to highlight the recent Queensland Government legislation to prevent prisoners from selling or exhibiting their work. This legislation needs a review to enable community arts organisations to play a role in the development of arts and cultural practices in prisons.

The successful auction raised much needed funds to support the legal services 2010 program and raised the issue of the current legislation. SBS and ABC radio stations both did stories art auction to support the review of this legislation
