On the Texan collective's educational initiatives and artistic collaborations reflecting on the US-Mexico border
Cofounded by artist Jason Reed and educator Ryan Sprott in 2007, Borderland Collective is a long-term participatory art and education project based in Texas. The project utilizes 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.
Otherwise, It Would Be Just Another River: Ten Years of Borderland Collective's Practice in Collaboration and Dialogue focuses on the participatory education and socially engaged art practices of Borderland Collective over the last 10 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.
