The Bi-National Arts Institute -BNAI- is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing quality arts education.

With projects on both sides of the US / Mexico border, we cultivate the arts through training, performance and exchange opportunities for the youth and adults of our region.

As a catalyst, the Institute channels the creative expression of music, poetry, film and other media by celebrating our shared human experience across the border.
