They Cannot Take the Sky: Stories From Detention
13-31 January, 2020
They Cannot Take the Sky: Stories From Detention is an exhibition made up of dozens of short video and audio stories, based on the book of the same name. Two-dozen people tell about their journey, their experiences in immigration detention and their life after release—or, for those who remain in offshore detention, their hopes for the future, despite their ongoing incarceration. The exhibition won a prestigious 2018 Museums and Galleries National Award (MAGNA) for best Temporary or Travelling Exhibition.
