Every effort has been made to verify the accuracy of the event information but we recommend contacting the event organisers before attending.

Beyond Borders seeks to harness Scotland's unique heritage to provide both a platform and a model to cultural leaders from around the world to exchange experiences in an effort to promote greater understanding and help reduce conflict. It uses the Scottish Borderlands - which once historically was seen as a wall of division between warring countries - as a meeting place for world cultures and leaders.
Beyond Borders runs dialogue projects and cultural events all year round, culminating in the Beyond Borders International Festival of Literature & Thought, which takes place throughout August every year at Traquair House in the Scottish Borders and in Edinburgh.
Beyond Borders works through several mediums - literature, arts, film, politics and dialogue - to harness Scotland's unique heritage to provide a platform to cultural leaders from around the world to exchange experiences, in an effort to promote understanding and help reduce conflict. It seeks to facilitate rather than prescribe its cultural output.

It’s a truly unique experience and all are welcome.
