Community choirs, musicians, solo singers, and all participants can learn the ‘Refugee (Have Mercy)’ song and present it in myriad forms. School students are invited to learn the song (as a class, year level, house, choir, music group (or whole school!) and record their own version to upload and share on the website. It may be hip hop, acoustic, acapella or jazzy, as long as the words and melody are the same.¬† Listen to song & learn >

Paper boats will be used as markers, symbols, and modes of information sharing throughout the Walking Borders action. Boat making workshops  can be held in your classrooms, lunchtimes, after school, at home, inviting parents and friends too. Then drop off your created boats to the main Walking Boarders team to use or CREATE YOUR OWN EVENT. Maybe you could place boats in a path around your school, or in the school landscape. Learn how to make >
