Besides all our actual projects, BNAI's future projects include a bi-national youth music camp; an English/Spanish Language Institute; presentations of research projects with scholars from Sonora and Arizona; new film and artistic projects...


Even with all our effort there are always expenses to cover in order to keep our events and projects running. From paying modest honoraria and travel expenses for artists travelling from Hermosillo, Agua Prieta or Tucson to funds for postcards, posters, graphic art design, postage, and other small incidentals. Other expenses, such as stage construction, lighting, sound system and site clean-up, are being raised by our generous sponsors and through in-kind donators.


The Binational Arts Institute is a 501(c)(3). Your contribution is essential not only to offset our operational costs but to grow and continue our mission with strength. Thank you!

Bi-National Arts Institute

5 Gardner Street

Bisbee, AZ  85603


The Bi-National Arts Institute is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization located in Bisbee, AZ. Working on each side of the U.S. Mexico border (Arizona and Sonora), 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.
