Artist's Description

We “Ducks for Detainees” are about to have an exhibition at the local library ‘Welcoming Refugees’ for Refugee Week. This work is a contemplation of people who remain detained for no illegal activity.

“These people have not been proved to have done anything wrong…It is not illegal to seek asylum. It is illegal to detain asylum seekers indefinitely.” Prof Ben Saul The Guardian May 2016

About Ducks for detainees
‘Ducks for Detainees’ the brain child of Maggie Cowling. She facilitates artists and community to produce artworks for awareness raising on the issues surrounding offshore and long-term incarceration of refugees called ‘detainees’.

Artworks produced by artists, a nominated percentage of the profits, go to ASRC (asylum seeker resource centre) or similar organisations.

This artwork is produced to support Ducks for Detainees with 50% of the profits go to ASRC and 50% covers the artwork costs of production.
