The Torch supports Indigenous offenders and ex-offenders through its Indigenous Arts in Prisons and Community program. Central to the program is cultural learning, strengthening, expression and sharing.

Dhumbadha Munga (talking knowledge), in the language of the Boonwurrung people, looks at the two-way relationship between the arts workers and the artists they support. Through dhumbadha munga they learn, develop and reinforce their cultural identity and express and share their stories through art.

As it has done so for generations, Indigenous Culture remains alive through talking and sharing knowledge.
