The Bi-national Arts Institute (BNAI) came into existence to deal with the complex and difficult issue of collaboration within our border region. At times, it is hard to see the border as a rich source of culture rather than a divider.

We see our communities in both sides of the border as a rich environment where peoples and cultures are truly transnationals. We share the vision of a common culture in the borderlands and you, as part of this rich community are important for us. BNAI is a volunteer organization, result of the continuous effort of the community. If you want to be part of BNAI, you are most welcome! Please fill out this form and we'll get back to you soon.

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.
