Postcards From The Border is a storytelling project of the El Paso - Ciudad Juárez border region that uses the postcard as a tool to visualize and engage urban issues present at the US-Mexico border. We understand the object of the postcard as a moment that allows us to draw site-specific stories. By engaging with communities, the project visually unpacks complex socio-ecological narratives of the border region - migration, human rights, community, anti-racism and gender equality, and a changing climate; depicting the unique border landscapes from which these stories emerge. At the border, we find that these local narratives challenge divisive notions of infrastructure and institutions and that ask us, simply, how we can live better - here and together.
