Borderland Collective,“Borderland Collective is a social art project that facilitates the participatory exploration and documentation of geographic and socio cultural borders. Fueled by collaborations between artists, teachers, youth, and families we use art as a means to trouble notions of who holds knowledge and what stories are told, providing an inclusive representation of the contemporary American experience.”
