bending the borders of artistic expression
The Borderbend Arts Collective presents boundary-pushing arts programming by connecting artists with communities to create year-round musical, literary and multi-arts programs involving new and unique arts practices. Our programs include site-specific events; arts education programs; collaborations among local, regional, and international artists and organizations; and work presented on web-based platforms -- all with the goal of building community.
Annual Borderbend programs include the Chicago Calling Arts Festival and Mingus Awareness Project. Borderbend partners with other organizations to enrich and extend the reach of its programs which have involved artists, organizations, and communities from the U.S. and beyond.
