Prisons 2016

Australia's only conference which explores the entire prison life cycle - from funding, to design to operations and management.

Sponsor & Exhibit
Venue & Accommodation

Earlier this month Corrective Services Minister David Elliott announced a staggering $3.8 billion budget for prison expansion in New South Wales - to accommodate an expected 7000 additional inmates by 2020.

The immediate benefits of increasing prison infrastructure are obvious. But how effective and sustainable is this approach to improving Australia's corrective system?

Looking beyond temporary relief for the nation's overcrowding crisis Prisons 2016 conference will explore Architectural, Political and Psychosocial perspectives on correction and rehabilitation.

Key topics to be covered include:

  • Current position and performance of correctional services in Australia
  • Prisons in NSW: the fiscal challenge
  • Successfully allocating risk and negotiating PPP contracts in Prisons
  • The role of the architect as a technical advisor to Government
  • Learning from the borderlands
  • Rehabilitation in crowded settings
  • Technology for learning in prisons
