For one night only, get a glimpse inside the world of asylum seekers detained indefinitely on Nauru.

Last year, artist Lachie Hinton and photojournalist Mridula Amin took a covert trip to Nauru, where they documented the experiences of asylum seekers who have been detained indefinitely for the New York Times. The two will be exhibiting unpublished work from that trip for one night only, to help raise awareness around the effects of long-term detention and raise money for the Asylum Seekers Centre.

The exhibition, which is supported by Commune, Young Henrys Brewery and Vision Image Lab, will include unseen photographs, visual art, documentary work and writing detailing the experiences of refugees on the island.

The Australian director of Human Rights Watch, Elaine Pearson, will give an opening address at 6pm, followed by a screening of Limboland, Hinton and Amin’s documentary about life on Nauru.

From 5pm to 10pm.
