The United States-Mexico borderlands has always been a beautiful mix of culture, language, cuisine, economies and people. It has also been a place of struggle, high and low temperatures, a fragile environment and the push and pull of immigration.
The Borderlands is the perfect place to explore the arts, touch the culture and have deeper conversations about the complicated issues that collide here.
On Friday and Saturday afternoons, we will have 19 different music, art, writing, and dance classes in the ninth annual Common Ground on the Border program.
On Saturday morning, we will have three border information lectures with stimulating national and international scholars and activists sharing their perspectives on our current border and immigration crisis.
In addition, there will be field trips to the border, into the desert, and other nearby locations on Thursday. And, of course, there will be dynamic concerts on Friday and Saturday nights.
Please follow the instructions on the registration site.
If you plan to take a class or two, please browse the classes for period one and/or period two before entering the registration site. CHOOSE ONLY ONE CLASS PER PERIOD.
