Borders 2022

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.

The Project:


Arts Mildura would like to acknowledge the Latji Latji, Nyeri Nyeri, Ngintait, and Wergaia people as the Traditional Owners of the land on which we work, along with their neighbours the Barkindji, Maraura, Mutti Mutti, Tatti Tatti and Wotjabaluk people.

We pay our respects to each of these communities and to their elders past and present.
