Beyond Borders

MAPgroup


Beyond Borders documents the unique experiences of asylum seekers and refugees seeking a safer life under exceptionally challenging circumstances, through photographs and multimedia.
 
The photographers explore diverse themes including the universality of parenthood, the longing for loved ones separated by displacement or death, the difficulty of being torn between two cultures, and the concept of home. But it is the words of the participants, woven into the exhibition, which are most powerful.
 
Coming from a range of countries including Afghanistan, Vietnam, Syria, Sri Lanka and Somalia, Beyond Borders highlights their multifaceted experiences, stories and voices. And yet, these voices hauntingly suggest the countless others that will never be heard.
Exhibition: Thursday 13 June - Sunday 11 August
Location: Mildura Arts Centre



Mildura Rural City Council and Mildura Arts Centre
