Association Of Performing Arts Presenters
The Associationís Cultural Exchange Fund is a travel subsidy program that assists U.S.-based presenters working to build partnerships and collaborations with international touring artists, companies, and their collaborators. The goal is to promote the display of work by artists from around the world in its own cultural context. Funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Association strongly encourages travel to the Middle East, Asia, Latin America, and Africa although proposals are not limited to those sites. Travel subsidies will be awarded to individual presenters, presenting organizations, and groups of presenters traveling to see the work of artists, companies, and/or to develop and advance projects with international artists and their collaborators. All applicants must be members of the Association of Performing Arts Presenters. For-profit organizations arenít eligible for Cultural Exchange funds. The program does not fund artists that are performing or traveling to meet with international presenters about performing opportunities, nor does it fund managers, agents, or producers working to expand business rosters. The maximum amount awarded per individual organization, inclusive of travel costs and per diem is $2,000. Group travel subsidies will be awarded only to groups of three or more presenters from different member presenting organizations. The maximum award for a group is $10,000, with no more than $2,000 awarded per organization. Application deadlines vary according to the planned travel period. Additional information is available on the Web site.
