History

Border Crossings is a Winnipeg-based arts magazine that was founded in 1982 by Robert Enright, the magazine’s first Editor-in-Chief. It first began publishing under the title Arts Manitoba in the mid-1970s, with the intention of being a bi-monthly arts and culture magazine. Beginning in 1978, financial troubles almost put an early end to the publication, but in 1982 it was re-invigorated with the help of a small board of directors which included Meeka Walsh. In 1985 it began publishing under its current name, a title which was more in-line with Enright and Walsh’s shared vision of a magazine which transcended borders, both artistically and physically. Walsh took over as Editor-in-Chief in 1993, a position which she continues to occupy as of 2017.

Border Crossings features a wide range of arts and culture topics such as artist profiles, theatre reviews, interviews, photography portfolios and editorials, from both a Canadian perspective and an international one. Its content is “more curated than edited” and it stands alone as Canada’s premier arts magazine.
