Mission Statement

The Borderbend Arts Collective is a 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to promote the arts by to creating opportunities for artists to explore the aesthetic geography along the borders and boundaries between art forms. Poetry, music, performance, and the visual arts are no longer discreet modes: hybrid forms and interarts collaborations proliferate in global arenas.

Borderbend events encourage artists to use innovative aesthetic technologies and create strategies to engage and collaborate with artists from divergent communities in Chicago and around the world. Multi-venue musical performances, literary events, visual arts exhibitions, and interdisciplinary festivals reach beyond immediate cultural and aesthetic neighborhoods to cross borders and boundaries among participants, audiences, and art forms.

Borderbend projects include the Chicago Calling Arts Festival, Mingus Awareness Project, and Experimental Piano Series. Borderbend partners with other organizations to enrich and extend the reach of its projects -- such as the PianoForte Foundation, IS Productions, Interfaith Youth Core, and the Center for Contemporary Environmental Art.

Borderbend projects have involved artists, organizations, and communities from the U.S. and beyond; Borderbend has worked with artists from Canada, Latin America, Africa, Asia, Europe, and Australia.
