Trans Cultural Exchange (TCE) is an award winning, Boston based non-profit arts organization.
The organization's endeavor "The Tile Project, Destination: The World” (2004) comprised
of artists from over 35 nations. 
TCE's mission is to foster a greater understanding of world cultures through art 
exchanges, exhibitions and related events. 
By bringing artists around the world together through our international projects, we seek to 
bridge political, social and geographic divides and to foster an exchange of ideas, 
about international peace and cooperation.

We aim to affirm the hope that people of the world can cross superficial boundaries 
and work towards peace and understanding, regardless of nationality, race, gender or age.
The spirit of the Tile Project will resonate loudly amongst individuals and their communities
around the world.
100 artists from different countries of the world brought their artistic work together to 
install 22 collective pieces of art at 22 site in different countries, in order to create a harmony 
from their religious, lingual, social, cultural and political differences.


In Israel the project was curated by Karmela Berg and is permanently displayed at the Faculty of Exact Sciences, Tel Aviv University.
