National Endowment for the Arts
Closing Date: January 15, 2019
Through grants with other funders, the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) has a long history of bringing the benefits of international exchange to audiences, artists, and arts organizations nationwide. For many years, however, there have been limited opportunities for foreign arts presenters to come to the U.S. and see artists at events in geographically diverse areas of our country. Programs such as these are important because they create new markets for working artists, expand mutual understanding, and raise the profile of each participating U.S. region and country. To address this ongoing gap, the NEA’s Performing Arts Discovery program supports U.S. Regional Arts Organizations (RAOs) to undertake performing arts platforms in their region that will showcase the work of U.S. performing artists for presenters1 based outside of this country.
