French-american Jazz Exchange
|Category: Arts & Culture
The Program, a partnership of the Cultural Service of the French Embassy, the French American Cultural Exchange, and the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation, seeks to foster the creative and professional development of jazz artists from France and the United States. The Exchange promotes collaborative investigation of artistic practice and exposure to new audiences, musical concepts, and professional relationships. The Exchange supports projects jointly c conceived by French and American professional jazz artists that encourage artistic exploration, foster intercultural dialogue, and contribute to the dynamism of the art form. Each Exchange project features a lead partner from one country working with a collaborating partner from the other country. Lead and collaborating partners may be either individual artists or ensembles. Projects may take place either in France or the U.S. and their respective territories within a 16-month period. Grants may be applied toward artist stipends, communications, equipment and space rentals, fiscal sponsor fees (if applicable), marketing, project-related agent/management fees, recording and production fees, shipping, travel-related expenses and visa fees.
