The Blurred Borders Project
Many culturally connected Aboriginal communities span the Northern Territory/Western Australia border. Different laws apply on each side of the border, which can create confusion about the law for local Aboriginal people. The aim of Blurred Borders is to produce resource kits for legal and community service providers working with Aboriginal people in the NT/WA cross-border region. The resource kits use visual art and storytelling to help explain, in a culturally accessible way, the key legal concepts around bail and the criminal process, and family violence. These resources are also helpful for non-Aboriginal people and have been used with CALD individuals and those with cognitive impairments.
