Fund for U.S. Artists at International Festivals and Exhibitions Announces 2004 Performing Arts
Deadline: January 16, May 3, and September 7, 2004
The Fund for U.S. Artists at International Festivals and Exhibitions is a public-private partnership of the Nation- al Endowment for the Arts (http://www.nea.gov/), the U.S. Department of State, the Pew Charitable Trusts, and the Rockefeller Foundation, with additional support from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. The fund is admin- istered by Arts International.
In the performing arts, the fund makes grants to individ- ual artists and arts organizations that have been invited to present their work at international festivals outside the United States. Eligible expenses (up to $25,000) supported through the fund include travel, per diem, international communication costs, shipping, and artist and agent fees. The fund supports artists with U.S.
citizenship or permanent resident status working at a professional level, and is particularly interested in supporting applicants invited to festivals in areas of the world where U.S. work is less frequently seen, includ- ing Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
Complete guidelines and application forms are available at the Arts International Web site.
