They Cannot Take the Sky



“Around you, everything is metal fences. But the sky – they cannot take the sky.” – Behrouz Boochani


They Cannot Take the Sky: Stories from Detention is a touring exhibition of personal stories from people who have sought asylum in Australia and have been detained by the Australian government under its mandatory detention policy. The exhibition is showing in Bendigo, Geelong, Shepparton, and Ballarat.


Alongside the exhibition, Road to Refuge is hosting launches, workshops, and public programs.

In response to COVID-19 we are postponing all exhibition openings, workshops, and public programs, but are working to create online viewing rooms of the exhibition.
