The 18th Street Arts Center has always celebrated artists from all across the globe. On March 25, 2021 the arts center premieres Borderless, a new membership program. This new program is designed for those who are committed to supporting the work of American and international contemporary artists, and who believe that a thriving international arts community is key to addressing the major challenges of our time. Your contribution underwrites the development of new works-in-progress by notable rising and established international artists during their residencies at 18th Street Arts Center, who are global ambassadors to artist communities around the world.

Through Borderless, you will have exclusive access to programs that unveil the depth and importance of artist communities around the world through the eyes of influential international artists.

Each quarter, the series will focus on a different region, with artist-designed cultural experiences including live virtual discussions with international artists, artist tours of their studios and communities on-the-ground, and cultural exchange programs. The first focus in 2021 will be on Yogyakarta, Indonesia, with experiences designed by artist Mella Jaarsma unveiling the dynamic artist and artisanal communities of that city.
