Borderland: On Reviving Culture is a most timely book that tells the story of a project for our times. It is the story of the Borderland organization, which consists of two dovetailing initiatives, an international NGO, the Borderland Foundation, and the more locally and nationally focused Borderland Centre of Arts, Culture and Nations. Borderland is based in the far northeastern corner of Poland close to the borders of Russia, Lithuania and Belarus, where it has devised an array of programs and initiatives designed to promote harmonious cultural plurality in a region of inter-ethnic and religious tensions that date back centuries.
