The Painted River Project Moree

Celebrating water through arts, culture and science

BAMM, in collaboration with Western Sydney University and the Monash Institute Sustainable Development, proudly presents The Painted River Project Moree.

The Painted River Project is a long-term research project developed by Dr Leo Robba of Western Sydney University that has been designed to communicate the need for cultural transformation towards a real understanding of the role water and our river systems play in underpinning human health and wellbeing.

The aim of the project in Moree is to celebrate water through art, culture, literature and science, and to share an understanding of the important role it plays in our way of life.

Since 2021, BAMM has hosted the Painted River Project Moree as an event to bring together urban and rural based creatives, scientists and community members on the banks of the Mehi and Gwydir Rivers around Moree.

This has now transformed into an annual pilgrimage that brings together artists, writers, scientists, photographers and locals to create open discussion around innovation in agriculture, the significance of traditional cultural knowledge, and the value of the arts in regional NSW.
