project origins

The Williams River Valley Artists' Project began in response to renewed plans by the state government and the Hunter Water Authority to construct the Tillegra Dam on the Williams River just north of Dungog. An action which would result in destruction of the river, flooding of the valley and erasure of the community.
For 50 years the local community has successfully resisted similar plans, with the result that today the Williams River is one of the few healthy rivers in NSW.
