“Beyond Borders” update

It’s been a busy year for our Beyond Borders project, which documents the experiences of asylum seekers and refugees. We created a paste up at Footscray Community Arts Centre and screened the videos at Head On Photo Festival and Dandenong. Beyond Borders was also exhibited at the Museum of Australian Democracy as part of the Ballarat International Foto Biennale and was viewed by over 2,700 people. Here are some of the visitors’ comments:

“Beautiful and yet devastating”
“The best show this year!”
“Important and evocative”
“Wonderful work by MAP with a real heart”
“Brilliant – tears to eyes and smiles of pride at our new Australians”
“An inspiring exhibition, which strengthened my resolve to do more”

MAPgroup would like to continue exhibiting this powerful body of work. For any exhibiting enquiries or to find out more, please contact us via the Beyond Borders website:
