Otherwise, It Would Be Just Another River

Otherwise, It Would Be Just Another River focuses on the participatory education and socially engaged art practices of Borderland Collective over the last ten years. The book shares stories and collective knowledge about the US-Mexico border created by students, teachers, artists, and community members in an array of Borderland Collective projects through poems, prose, photographs, and drawings. 

Borderland Collective is a long-term participatory art and education project based in Texas. The project utilises collaborations between artists, educators, youth, and community members to engage complex social issues and build space for diverse perspectives, meaningful dialogue, and varying modes of creation and reflection.
