California Lawyers for the Arts is proud to present its fourth annual bi-national symposium, INTERSECTIONS: Art and Law at the Border. With a focus on the geo-political context of the Tijuana-San Diego region, the intention of this gathering is to highlight artists, activists, lawyers, scholars, and researchers who's work navigates the intersection of art, praxis and legal issues.  

The San Diego-Tijuana region has been named the 2024 Design Capital of the World and with this designation there is a call to construct more equitable futures at and across the border. With over 100,000 daily crossings the region constitutes one of the worlds busiest borders. This  dynamic and bustling locality is home to a unique and vibrant community that holds a plethora of vantage points, experiences, and insights into what a more equitable future must include.  Characterized by the ebb and flow of migration and fraught by the push and pull of political attitudes, a borderzone is a place where art flourishes as both creative expression and a call to action. 

We hope you will join us for INTERSECTIONS 2022 as we continue the conversation. 

*Webinars will occur weekly on Thursday evenings from 6-8PM PST, beginning June 2nd  and running through June 23rd.*

Join us for our closing reception which will be held at The Front Gallery in San Ysidro on June 30th, from 6-8 pm!

*Registration for any of the panel conversations includes access to the closing reception.* 

[ESP] California Lawyers for the Arts tiene el orgullo de presentar su cuarto simposio binacional, INTERSECTIONS: Arte y Derecho en la Frontera. Con un enfoque en el contexto geopolítico de la región de Tijuana-San Diego, la intención de este encuentro es destacar a los artistas, activistas, abogados, académicos e investigadores cuyo trabajo navega por la intersección del arte, la praxis y las cuestiones legales.

La región de San Diego-Tijuana ha sido nombrada Capital Mundial del Diseño 2024 y con esta designación se hace un llamamiento para construir futuros más equitativos en la frontera y a través de ella. Con más de 100.000 cruces diarios, la región constituye una de las fronteras más transitadas del mundo. Caracterizada por el flujo de la migración y cargada por el empuje y el tirón de las actitudes políticas, una zona fronteriza es un lugar donde el arte florece como expresión creativa y como un llamado tomar acción.

Esperamos que se una a nosotros en INTERSECTIONS 2022 para continuar la conversación.

*Los seminarios web se presentaran semanalmente del 2 al 23 de junio, de 6 a 8 de la tarde (hora del Pacífico).

*El costo de inscripción para cualquiera de los 4 programs incluye la recepción de clausura.*

Acompáñanos en la recepción de clausura en The Front Gallery en San Ysidro el 30 de Junio, de 6 a 8 de la tarde!

Borders both conceptual and physical play a role in separating communities across geographies, space and time. Documentation of the feelings which surround events like separation, migration and exile serve to name the unique experiences of those who exist outside of traditional notions of nation-state citizenship. This panel will feature artists and organizations who strive to create intervention, amplify representation, and raise awareness, regarding commonly accepted narratives about migration, identity and citizenship.
