Murray Living

2014-05-06

Murray Living

While the focus of the crisis in Murray-Darling Basin (MDB) is about water, economics and bio-diversity (the Living Murray), Murray Living asks how it feels to live in the region and aims to map a socio-diversity of the Basin. The regional communities located in the villages, towns and cities of the Murray-Darling Basin have been derived from the agricultural landscape. The relationship between the rural landscape and townscape is clearly defined by the historic boundaries between agriculture and urban culture creating rural islands of population clusters.
