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.

El Centro Community Center Fundraiser

Help Us Reach Our Goal!

Hola todos! Join us in celebrating the opening of El Centro, a youth community center in Naco, Arizona. Our next big project is the opening of El Centro Cafe, a small coffee shop within the center that will not only employ young people in our community, but also whose proceeds will go to supporting El Centro as a whole. In order to open up this next opportunity, we need the continued support of friends, family, and members of our community. We are currently trying to raise $5,800 through our GoFundMe campaign. Click the donate button or the link below to help us reach our goal!



We look forward to this next chapter, and we encourage you to stop by for a fresh cup of coffee at our intended opening at the end of August 2021.
