consular district with up to US$40,000 in FY2018 for a project period not to exceed two years.
The preliminary start date for this activity is October 15, 2018, and one award is anticipated as a result of this NOFO.
However, should both parties consider the results of this exchange to be positive – and also subject to availability of funds – we may agree to renew this NOFO for up to two additional years.
We are seeking proposals for the development and implementation of a program to support the participation of American artists at cultural festivals and other special events in Sao Paulo’s consular district, which comprises the states of Sao Paulo, Parana, Mato Grosso do Sul.
By ensuring American representation at cultural events and artistic performances, the program contributes to engage local audiences in understanding U. S. values, as well as to and generate and expand connections between American and Brazilian institutions and individuals.
