About Us


About Biennial of the Americas


At The Biennial of the Americas, we are building a deep and enduring network to connect leaders from across the western hemisphere, tear down the barriers that divide us and foster more substantive political, commercial and cultural exchange. Launched in 2010, we were formed around the transformational idea that the north-south axis is a critical nexus of business and social import, which receives too little attention.

Today we embrace our common experience in the Western hemisphere, a region that grew to define the global and cultural marketplaces in the 20th century. By building on our shared experience and a deep understanding of and appreciation for each other’s cultures, we can build the most productive and innovative economic and cultural exchange in the world for the 21st century and beyond.
