Description

The Border Line presents,

The Prison at Home

an evening of informal discussion with anthropologist Patrick Horton

Patrick’s PhD research explores the lived experiences of imprisonment for Aboriginal families and communities in the NT. He asks how people talk, think and feel about prison and the prison system. More broadly, who benefits from the prison industry and the disproportionate incarceration of Aboriginal people? And how does the prison system impact Aboriginal people’s capacity to relate to and speak for country in the context of increasing development and resource extraction?

6pm Thursday 25th July, 2019

All welcome.

Organizer The Border Line

Organizer of The Border Line presents: The Prison at Home, an informal discussion with anthropologist Patrick Horton

The Border Line is an experimental cultural initiative established by Alana Hunt. It fosters creative and critical discourse in the north-west of Australia through film screenings, events, discussions and artistic practice...Conceptually The Border Line has emerged from a broad interest in the porosity of borders, those that lie between nations, people, and disciplines. Geographically and culturally The Border Line takes shape on Miriwoong country which exists on both sides of the Western Australia and Northern Territory border. Temporally speaking The Border Line is in no rush.
