Featured News & Events

Borderless Arts is once again participating in the Big Payback. However, this year we are using these efforts to support our participation as the US representatives at an international forum in Egypt.

Borderless Arts Tennessee was invited to the Awladna International Forum for Arts for the Gifted in Cairo, Egypt in which 31 countries will be participating. Borderless Arts will be representing the United States.

The Awladna Forum invited Borderless Arts after seeing a video of the Movement Connection dancers wearing the Nick Cave inspired costumes created by the Teapot Diplomats under the artistic direction of Dee Kimbrell. The video was shown at a VSA Egypt festival in February.

Borderless Arts Tennessee will travel with its Executive Director (Lori Kissinger), Movement Connection Artistic Director (Danielle Clement), Two Movement Connection dancers (Kat Bernstein and Grace Dodd) and one Teapot Diplomat visual artist who helped make the costumes and who will dance with the group (Hope McKee). This is an extremely exciting opportunity for Borderless Arts TN. We are proud to represent our organization, State and country!
