The Binational Arts Residency brings together a multi-racial, binational, bilingual group of women cultural workers and arts leaders from Arizona and Sonora who believe in the power of the arts to create new social imaginaries. Over the course of one year, we work together to bring artists, community members, institutions, and students together to co-create and participate in the Binational Arts Residency. The Binational Arts Residency is a part of the ASU Performance in the Borderlands seasonal public programming.
