Summary

Documents a 12-month artists' residency in Bordertown, South Australia, during 2016. Three artists, James Dodd, Mark De Nys and Malcolm McKinnon, worked on the creation of art works with three groups of local residents (new arrivals, older men and young people), in an exploration of ideas around borders. The art works illustrated here comprise a variety of media including murals, photography, and sculpture. The artists' experiences and profiles are presented alongside writings by and interviews with local Bordertown residents and national experts including Dave Graney, Peter Mares, Dr Linda Marie Walker and tactile book maker Vida Maney.
