The Margin to Margin project is about women living on the edges of the world is an art and research project that started in 2016 with four geographical margins: outback South Australia, Finnish Lapland, Russian Kola Peninsula and Namibia. The project seeks to understand shared challenges and opportunities with similar communities of research and through participation, uncover strategies to contribute to a more inclusive research agenda around the nexus of communities and technologies.
The goal of the project is to study how art empowers women living in marginal conditions through storytelling. The project was realised through a series of art and story-sharing workshops.
