Adding art to the correctional environment

The recently opened Karreenga correctional facility was designed to create an environment that facilitates rehabilitation in line with the modern approach to correctional facilities.

In support of this Corrections Victoria commissioned Sonsie Studios  to create three pieces to help improve the morale of the prisoners, staff and visitors to Karreenga. The large scale works are in black and white harking to the street art style of Melbourne’s CBD laneways. Featuring in the public visitors areas and in the main recreational space of the campus, the works help to create of sense of welcome and focal point.

Get a behind the scenes look at the process thanks to the amazing video by Sonsie Studios of their murals.
