Melbourne adopted Brisbane’s Luka Lesson a few years back and we are so glad to have him down here. Luka lent his voice to the campaign to stop 17-year-olds being locked up in Queensland’s adult prison system, the only state in Australia to do so. This is the poem and video he’s produced.
Don’t forget to check out other videos in our ‘Video Verse’ section of the site. We’re going to be getting some new and emerging voices on the scene up in the next few months. So stay tuned for that!
