Borders is a creative inquiry into vitalising people and place- exploring the relationship between creative communities in Victorian and New South Wales cross-border towns along the Murray River.
Artists from across regional Victoria and New South Wales will be invited to come together and revision the Murray River social & ecological community, from what it has been to what it can become.
Reinstating the value of the River as a meeting place, post borders closures of 2020-21, the Borders team will foster a rich creative environment aimed at renewing creative practices in the regions.
Unfolding across four cross-border towns which act as a touch points along the River, regional arts organisations will join forces to engage artists from both sides of the border. The three-year process from 2022-24 will combine social research, community dialogue, capacity building & performance development.
