The Vegetarian/Vegan Society of Queensland received a $20,000 grant for their Human Battery Cage Campaign, which used installation art to illustrate the animal welfare implications of battery cages. This project saw the construction of oversize battery cages containing human occupants in public spaces around Australia, in order to illustrate the cramped and inhumane conditions that battery hens endure, and to encourage members of the public to take action against this cruelty. The campaign achieved notoriety across Australia in 2006, attracting the attention of members of the public in every location as well as receiving an extraordinary amount of media coverage.
