‘Notes on a River is one of 10 projects selected across the Murray Darling Basin for the ‘One River‘ Project.
One River is a multi-state and territory arts project being staged as a part of celebrations for the Centenary of Canberra in 2013, recognising the national capital’s location within the Murray-Darling Basin and its connection to the watery heart of the country. The project will engage and connect artists and communities throughout the Basin, exploring points of common interest and convergence. One River is informed by the notion that the rivers of the Murray-Darling Basin are part of our common wealth and our common responsibility.
One River will connect the national capital with communities, towns and waterways throughout the Murray-Darling Basin, from the river sources and tributaries of the inland to the various sites of confluence and, ultimately, to the river mouth where the Murray meets the Southern Ocean. These arts-based projects will offer the opportunity to connect cultural, scientific and economic thinking about our water ways. One River will encourage people to tell their story, to listen others’ stories
As part of the project, members of the OneRiver reference panel wrote various pieces for the respective projects – attached here is an EXCELLENT piece by panel member, Cameron Muir Layers of Values Afloat on the Darling – a paper by Cameron Muir
