Arts Exchanges on International Issues

The Arts Exchanges on International Issues Program is only open to non-profit arts, cultural and educational organizations.

The program works with nonprofit organizations to develop cooperative international group projects that introduce American and foreign participants to each other's cultural
and artistic life and traditions.

Our projects emphasize the relationship between the arts and broader social and diplomacy issues.

We seek organizations that have a disciplinary expertise in the arts as well as broad outreach and networking capabilities with American artists.
