Prison Songs Impact Campaign

Thank you for attending a screening of Prison Songs. 

Attached is a post-screening survey with a few short questions about your response to the film and the issues it raises. By participating in this survey, you are helping shape the future of Prison Songs. We truly value the information you provide and would greatly appreciate your participation. All your answers will be kept confidential.

The campaign around Prison Songs is of great importance. In the past 10 years we have seen an 88% increase in the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people ending up in prison, with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples now at least 13 times more likely to be imprisoned than non-Indigenous people. The impact of being in prison can be severe - not just for the individual but also for their whole community. It is rare that incarceration actually deals with the underlying reasons that have led to many of these people ending up in the criminal justice system.
