California Lawyers for the Arts proudly presents its sixth annual bi-national symposium, INTERSECTIONS: Art and Law at the Border. With a focus on the unique geopolitical context of the San Diego-Tijuana region, recently named the 2024 Design Capital of the World, this year's symposium delves into the dynamic interplay between art, law, and design in the borderlands.

Through a series of panels, the symposium will highlight the collaborative efforts of designers, architects, artists, and community advocates working to unite two cities divided by a border wall. Presenters will showcase urban and community projects that address pressing humanitarian challenges, offer innovative solutions for cross-border collaboration, and artistic adaptations that reshape the discourse surrounding borders. Attendees will have the unique opportunity to engage with leading experts, including legal professionals, artists, and community activists, as they share their insights and expertise.

Join us at INTERSECTIONS 2024 at the NewSchool of Architecture and Design in San Diego as we explore the transformative power of design and its role in shaping the social, cultural, and political dynamics of the San Diego-Tijuana region.

California Lawyers for the Arts se complace en presentar su sexto simposio binacional anual, INTERSECTIONS: Arte y Derecho en la Frontera. Con un enfoque particular en el contexto geopolítico de la región San Diego-Tijuana, la cual este 2024 fue nombrada la Capital Mundial del Diseño, el simposio de este año profundizará la interacción dinámica entre el arte, derecho y diseño de la zona fronteriza.

A través de una serie de paneles, el simposio resaltará los esfuerzos de diseñadores, arquitectos, artistas y líderes comunitarios que trabajan para unir dos ciudades divididas por un muro fronterizo. Los ponentes mostrarán proyectos urbanos y comunitarios que abordan retos humanitarios, ofrecen soluciones innovadoras para colaboraciones transfronterizas y adaptaciones artísticas que remodelan el discurso en torno a las fronteras. Los invitados tendrán la oportunidad única de interactuar con destacados expertos, entre ellos profesionales de derecho, artistas y activistas comunitarios, que compartirán con nosotros sus conocimientos y experiencia.

Están cordialmente invitados a INTERSECTIONS 2024. Unanse el 29 de Junio en The New School of Architecture and Design en San Diego para explorar el poder transformador del diseño y su importante función en la formación de la dinámica social, cultural y política de la región San Diego-Tijuana.
