Centre "Borderland of Cultures, Arts, Nations" in Sejny, Poland is among the most recognized and experienced Central-European non-governmental organizations dealing with art and education for intercultural dialogue. Since the early 1990's, it has been conducting cultural, educational and artistic activities with the local community. The Center developed its own methodology of integrative practices based on many years' experience of daily work in the concrete place embracing one whole community, starting from the youngest to the oldest. The mission of the Borderland Fundation is to explore and popularize modern practices of the intercultural dialogue based on the symbiosis of art and education.
