FOCUS: Borders

Harbourfront Centre travels beyond Borders. Is the world smaller than you think? What would a world without borders look like? Can culture be a universal language? What are the limits of your personal space? Through to September, Harbourfront Centre wants you to read between the lines and consider borders through all of our programmingborders within countries, borders within relationships, open borders, psychological borders, shifting borders and more. Harbourfront Centreculture without borders.
