Feria de Fronteras is a party at the border. It is a crossroad between cultures and people, where we meet and share, inquire and offer answers about borders set and borders unseen. Feria de Fronteras is a platform for artists coming from different disciplines and cultural workers who will jointly perform in order to create a creative space for presenting, questioning and erasing borders between people and cultures. Feria de Fronteras invites Europeans, but also those who will soon become Europeans to think about the impact of borders in their own lives.
‘Feria de Fronteras’ has four corners and each represent one organization from Belgium, France, Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina and from each corner different activities will be created and creatively connected. In order to ensure that borders are revealed Feria de Fronteras will, through a multicultural band Tijuana Tango, visual art Exhibition “High Wire Act”, photo exhibition “Break-on-Through” and a documentary film “BORDERS”, offer a set of solution and views on borders while at the same time celebrate the potential of an individual/citizen/artist to be an actor of change.
