Cultural celebrations among the Riverina's young people are set to receive creative inspiration when a major arts project begins tomorrow.
The 'No Borders In Our Sky' project is two days of music and art workshops for young people of various backgrounds.
The program is a joint-initiative between Wagga Multicultural Council and Heaps Decent, an Australian-based arts organisation working with young people and emerging artists from diverse communities.
The organisation provides a means by which young people may tell their stories in their own ways.
WMC community-development officer Thom Paton said the program is about "celebrating cultures ... and for everyone to come together".
"Basically, it's a monthly program where Heaps Decent will come to Wagga to facilitate a range of different arts workshops," Mr Paton said.
"It's a creative outlets for young people to explore their creative mediums — whether that be song writing or music."
The workshops will also have digital arts, including virtual- and augmented-reality technologies.
While WMC and Heaps Decent have been working together for about eight years now, this is the first time this kind of project has been established.
A number of musical and visual artists, along with two music producers, will attend, bringing a portable recording studio with them.
The program will run on Monday and Tuesday, starting at 10.30am each day at 18 Station Place, Wagga.
The initiative is funded through Multicultural NSW.
