INFORMATION
Incident:Complaint
Downgraded:Unknown

I was asked on Friday (26-9-2014) by a fellow teacher [REDACTED 1] if I would sit with an asylum seeker [REDACTED 2] who was sobbing. She is a classroom helper for the children. A secondary teacher assistant [REDACTED 3] was present. She talked about several situations, some from Christmas Island, some from RPC3. She reported that she has been asking for a 4 minute shower as opposed to 2 minutes. Her request has been accepted on condition of sexual favours. It is a male security person. She did not state if this has or hasn’t occured. The security officer wants to view a boy or girl having a shower.

All We Can't See - group exhibition

I am part of an incredible group of artists part of the group exhibition responding to the Nauru files : All We Can't See. It opens tomorrow. My image has been used as the main image...

Details:

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.

‘All we can’t see’ exhibition aims to raise awareness and to humanise the individuals the Nauru files are about. I am very privileged to be showing work for this important show.

When: 2nd February – 10th February 2018

Where: The Yellow House, 57-59 Macleay Street Potts Point, Sydney
