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.
