Crossing Lines started as a highlining project, using the striking visuals of highlining to create a new conversation about Iran and the U.S. We’re continuing this project with a second trip to Iran in 2017 and planning more international highline festivals in the Middle East and elsewhere to connect people through highlining and film. We’re also expanding our efforts and bringing slacklining to refugees around the world. Slacklining has a wonderful ability to connect people, building communities and offering a chance to connect across social and economic divides.
We believe slacklining can aid in refugee resettlement and integration, offering a means to build a new community, learn languages, and play. Help us have an impact.
