One woman's journey - art as a tool to break through the trauma of incarceration and heal the damage to mental wellbeing

About

Breakthrough is the first solo exhibition by Eve McDougall, an artist, poet, public speaker, author and tutor. 

The exhibition will feature over 100 pieces of artwork compiled over the course of 30 years. The artwork tracks Eve’s journey which started when she was sent to an adult Victorian prison for breaking a baker’s window to steal some bread for her and her hungry siblings, when she was just 15 years old. 

The exhibition explores Eve’s struggles upon leaving prison and how she has since rebuilt her life, including by teaching creative writing, poetry and art to other women who have experienced incarceration.
