Art as a catalyst for change.

At the Trans-Border Institute, we tap the power of visual media to build empathy across divides. Leading filmmakers and photographers partner with us to explore the potential of tech innovation and cross-border connectivity. We do so through field-based projects, internship programs, and our annual documentary film festival, Border Film Week. All of these efforts showcase the border's dynamic and creative energy—rich resources for creative solutions to complex social conflict.
