BNG Learning was excited to partner with By The Banks to provide a creative chill out space for the inaugural music festival. With a shared philosophy of using the arts to bring people together, connecting community, creating positive change, fostering wellbeing, and providing a platform for local artists… the partnership was a perfect fit!

On offer was the creation of a collaborative community drawing, knitting squares for Carevan blankets (ably supported by some of our Sit & Knit crew) and some simple chilaxing, all to the soundtrack of amazing local, interstate and international musicians.

“By The Banks is a not-for-profit music festival set on the banks of the Murray River and featuring the incredible talent of local, interstate and international artists. A true collaboration of creativity and commerce in the Albury Wodonga region, By The Banks aims to showcase creative industries while also supporting local businesses. Run by a team of passionate, music-loving locals, the festival embodies the groundswell of support for live music in the area. “

We look forward to continuing our involvement with this important all-ages, all-access, cross-cultural initiative for local artists and the local arts movement.


Collaboration, community building, creative expression, imagination, story telling, wisdom sharing, improved wellbeing.
