In November 2018, Sisters Inside hosted the “Imagining Abolition” conference. Hundreds of women (and a few men) gathered together to consider how we can move forward to a world without prisons. The voices of women of lived prison experience, especially First Nations women, were at the forefront of these discussions.
This documentary was produced by Radio Seeds who spoke to many of the conference attendees. The beautiful photos were taken by Charandev Singh and used with permission. If there’s a photo of you that you’d prefer not be included in this slideshow, please email Heather.Anderson@unisa.edu.au .
