About the project

'Beyond the bars' is Australia’s only live prison broadcast, and in 2012 it involved over one hundred imprisoned Indigenous men and women.

Outcome of the project

It was broadcast from six different prisons during NAIDOC week, giving inmates an opportunity to share stories, songs, opinions and poems with their audience. The broadcasts were later released as a CD.

Listen to soundbites of the live broadcasts.
