In August 2016, the Guardian published The Nauru Files, leaked incident reports written by staff in Australia’s detention centre on Nauru between 2013 and 2015.
These files detail 2,116 individual cases of assault, sexual abuse, self-harm, child abuse and abhorrent living conditions endured by asylum seekers in the care of the Australian Government. Despite the harrowing nature of the files, the centre continues to operate as before – the conditions remain and the abuse is ongoing.
In the total absence of media access to the island, our objective is to illustrate these stories through creative expression, using art to shed light on all we can’t see.
Please join us for an exhibition of 30 leading Australian artists illustrating the Nauru Files. The exhibition will be held in February 2018 at The Yellow House in Sydney.
