As The U.S entered the divisive Trump era, our series followed an intrepid group of Middle Eastern artists as they traveled across the United States exploring some of the most important social and political issues of our time. From climate change along the Mississippi river to racial tensions in the inner cities, this series embodies a new type of journalism - one that believes in the soft power of artists to explore complicated subjects with empathy and insight.

Against the backdrop of the annual Hajj, Saudi artist Ahmed Mater reveals unprecedented changes to the holy city of Mecca – from flashy new hotels to the loss of priceless neighborhoods. In the third episode of Crossing the Line, our series connecting the US and Middle East, he takes us inside Islam’s urban heart. Mater explains, "In the city of Mecca, a new future is being drawn up. Its contours are becoming visible amidst a landscape teeming with initiatives - from the most public to the most private - aimed at developing and reinventing seemingly fixed rituals, states and assumptions; culminating, perhaps, in the re-imagining of life at the centre of the Islamic world.

Like few other 21st century cities, Mecca is rooted in a complex and highly emotive context in terms of its historical, geopolitical and religious symbolism. It is both one of the most visited places on earth and one of the most exclusive, and yet it is in flux, it moves, grows and invents itself again."
