A Letter from the Chairman 



^Jrums of Africa echo across America. The 
grace of an Indonesian dancer finds a partner 
on the stage of the New York City Ballet. A 
line drawn by a Finnish designer is picked up 
and continued in Chicago. The hands that 
mold clay on a turning potter's wheel may 
belong to an artist in Morocco, Spain, New 
Zealand or New Mexico. A fiddler in Donegal 
plays a tune in the same high lonesome sounds 
heard in the hills of Appalachia. Shakespeare 
is being performed tonight in Sydney, Toron- 
to, Sao Paulo, and Boston. A woman paints a 
still life in Tokyo, in Warsaw, in Quito, in San 
Francisco. 

Art is a universal language, one that breaks 
the barriers of speech and custom to remind us 
time and again of our common humanity. To 
understand ourselves and our brothers and sis- 
ters in nations across the globe, we only need 
look closely at their art and the spirit within 
it. Recognizing the importance of discovering 
what unites peoples, the U.S. government is 
committed to international arts exchange, and 
the National Endowment for the Arts is one 
Federal agency helping make that exchange 
possible and fruitful. 

The small, growing International Pro- 
gram at the Arts Endowment assists United 
States artists and arts institutions as they 
strengthen their international ties. The Pro- 
gram has information and insights on interna- 
tional cultural activities unmatched elsewhere 
in this country. Because of the complexities of 
the network that exists throughout the United 
States for international cultural exchange, our 



International Program has developed this clear 
and concise guidebook. 

This guide serves two purposes. The first 
is to introduce you to the work of our Interna- 
tional Program and how it complements the 
work of other federal, state, and local govern- 
ment entities to promote arts exchange. The 
second purpose is to provide a comprehensive 
and user-friendly source of information for 
those interested in international arts exchange. 

In addition to its modest grants program, 
our International Program functions as a sign- 
post to direct artists and arts organizations to 
other sources of information and funding that 
make possible international cultural exchange. 
An extraordinary interest in international arts 
exchange has manifested itself in every corner 
of our vast country. From New York City to 
Los Angeles, from Omaha to Albuquerque, 
communities large and small are recognizing 
that international arts exchange can provide 
unmatched experience for their artists and en- 
hance the prestige and economic vitality of 
their city or town. With our limited funds, we 
cannot hope to address this groundswell of 
interest. Therefore, we have developed this 
guide to help you find who in the often per- 
plexing array of public and private flinders 
can support the work you are doing. We want 
to put these resources at your fingertips. So 
turn the pages and you will discover a world 
of opportunities.

A Note from the Director 



Ihe Arts Endowment's International Program 
is devoted to broadening the scope of experi- 
ence of American artists to enrich the art that 
they create. Its activities help increase world- 
wide recognition of the excellence, diversity, 
and vitality of the arts of the United States. In 
addition, it supports innovative international 
endeavors that increase arts audiences and 
deepen public understanding of the cultural 
influences from abroad that invigorate Ameri- 
can society. Through all its work, the Pro- 
gram helps American artists and arts organiza- 
tions develop international ties that strengthen 
the many art forms of the United States. 

The Endowment's in-depth involvement 
in international activities began in 1978. We 
provided support to the United States Infor- 
mation Agency (USIA), which aims to in- 
crease international understanding of U.S. so- 
ciety, for its international arts programs. In 
1984, the Endowment established the Office 
of International Activities whose role was to 
serve as an advocate for U.S. arts and artists 
internationally. Recognizing the need to take 
a greater leadership role to support interna- 
tional arts activities and information exchanges, 
the Arts Endowment formally created the 
International Program in 1993. 

When I began my tenure as director in 
September 1990, I felt strongly that the Pro- 
gram should serve not only as a funding re- 
source, but also as an advocate and source of 
information for artists and arts organizations 



to help foster international arts exchanges. 
International elements are routinely integrated 
into the art that is created and presented 
throughout the United States. The increasing 
demand for support has severely strained the 
modest resources available to fund internation- 
ally-based work. The need to identify new 
resources to support international arts ex- 
changes has been an impetus for creating this 
guide. 

We have provided information on as many 
resources as are known to us that provide 
funding or information to artists or arts organ- 
izations wishing to work internationally. We 
do realize, however, that the information is 
only useful when it is current and accurate. We 
therefore encourage you to share your views, 
comments and experiences with us, so that we 
can update and improve this guide. If we have 
missed any resources, please write us about 
them and we will include them in future edi- 
tions. The entries in the guide are based on 
exhaustive research and interviews with each 
organization that is listed. All entrants have 
agreed to be included, though a listing in this 
guide in no way constitutes an endorsement of 
any organization by the U.S. Government. 
My sincere gratitude to all those involved in 
this massive undertaking.

PartOne: 

Resources for 
International Arts Exchange 



Chapter 1: 

An Introduction to International Arts Resources 



Ihroughout the United States communities 
are recognizing that international arts inter- 
change of the highest caliber provides un- 
matched experience for their artists, enhances 
the prestige and economic vitality of their 
towns, sparks interest to participate in the 
global marketplace, and improves the quality 
of life. 

Education is at the core of international 
exchange, and through increased access to 
such activities, the more than 170 different 
ethnic groups represented in this country learn 
more about the roots of their own cultures and 
those of other societies. International cultural 
events foster cultural literacy and greater audi- 
ence interest in a wide range of art forms. In 
addition, communities have found that expo- 
sure to a variety of cultural traditions engen- 
ders greater mutual respect among their dif- 
ferent cultural groups. 

Today, there is heightened international- 
ism in all aspects of U.S. society. Changing 
political, social and economic conditions in 
this country and around the world have 
stimulated international exchanges in the arts. 
It remains difficult, however, to obtain sup- 
port for these activities. As more artists seek 
to explore the artistic expressions of their cul- 
tural and ethnic heritages, and more organiza- 
tions seek to collaborate with traditional and 
contemporary artists abroad, the resources to 
fund this work are in great demand. 

In writing this guide, we have tried to 
respond to what we detect to be a growing 
interest in international work in the arts. Ev- 
ery day our office receives calls from poten- 
tial applicants seeking advice on how to make 
their international project happen. 

By far, the most commonly asked ques- 
tion is "Where can I go for funding?" Some 
ask about contacts abroad, embassy connec- 



tions, or how to plan a residency. Others want 
information on obtaining a visa for visiting 
foreign artists or themselves. Questions vary 
widely in scope, and the International Pro- 
gram staff senses an urgent need in the field 
for a central resource providing basic answers 
and guidance to artists and arts adnunistrators 
interested in international exchange. This guide 
represents our attempt to assemble informa- 
tion gathered over the past three years. 

It is organized in two parts. Part I provides 
annotated information about potential hinders 
and service organizations; Part II is a directory 
with various listings of resources for interna- 
tional art activities. Chapter Two outlines 
federal government programs, including the 
National Endowment for the Arts, the United 
States Information Agency, and other less ob- 
vious agencies that may support international 
work. The private funding community's inter- 
national interests are profiled in Chapter Three. 
To compile this information, we conducted a 
phone survey of hinders listed in the National 
Guide to Funding in Arts and Culture (1992) 
and the Directory of International Corporate 
Giving in America and Abroad (1993). 

As important as the dollars are, so, too, are 
the people who can put you in touch with 
others to help you carry out your project. 
Service organization staff members are linked 
to a network of contacts in their particular 
field that can be of great assistance. Chapter 
Four includes information on service organi- 
zations that have indicated an ability and a 
willingness to help artists with international 
work. These organizations can assist you by 
providing international contacts, referrals, tech- 
nical assistance and/or travel grants. 

Finally, it is of utmost importance to de- 
velop contacts with the arts community in 
your region and abroad before your trip. Your 



introduction 



conversations and letters will lead you to con- 
tacts in your country of interest. Many promi- 
nent cultural organizations can provide artists 
with specific information based on their par- 
ticular needs (eg., contacts, housing, funding). 
Part II, the Directory of Resources, provides 
Listings of those organizations, including state 
and local arts agencies and organizations 
abroad such as binational centers, government 
ministries, service organizations, presenting 
organizations, foundations and corporations 
whose assistance can be invaluable in re- 
sponding to your specific requests. 

For Those Contemplating Work 
Abroad 

Realizing how much work is involved in launch- 
ing an international project, you must hon- 
estly assess whether now is the appropriate 
time for you or your organization to embark 
on one. Keep in mind that you will have to 
devote much time and effort to make the 
project successful. Should you decide to pro- 
ceed, however, a deeply meaningful experi- 
ence may await you. ~ 

For some artists and organizations, work- 
ing abroad is an important "next step* in their 
work as they prepare to expand their horizons 
and move on to a new level of exposure, both 
of their art to new audiences and of themselves 
to new experiences. Some note a strong desire 
to explore their roots. Others want to study 
with a master teacher, to learn new skills, or 
to seek out topical subject matter, traditions or 
styles. After mastering their discipline and 
their home environment, they are ready to 
move beyond; experiencing another culture 
becomes a necessary outgrowth of their work. 
Others are motivated by a drive to re-experi- 
ence that common bond, that universality, 
reflected in the human condition that is so 
often the fabric of art. 

What makes some international projects 
successful while others are less so? Frequently, 
it is the project director's commitment to mak- 



ing the project happen. A visionary force com- 
bined with a determined confidence drives the 
best international projects. You must truly 
want your project to happen, because it re- 
quires extraordinary resourcefulness to initi- 
ate the contacts and raise the money to accom- 
plish an international endeavor successfully. 

In many ways, the task of raising funds can 
be likened to a job search. Networks of busi- 
ness colleagues, friends, and other artists can all 
provide contacts with others who share an 
interest in a foreign country. Often, it takes a 
groundswell of support, mustered by you, to 
attract positive attention to your project from 
the media, your local and state governments, 
and local businesses. Because there are so few 
funders for international activities, you may 
have to put some of your own money toward 
turning your idea into a reality. For an artist 
or an organization just starting in the interna- 
tional realm, local fundraising is likely to be 
most fruitful. For example, good old fashioned 
bake sales, car washes, and raffles have helped 
many Arts Endowment grantees raise start-up 
funds for their international projects. 

Project Research 

It is important to explore cultural values and 
sensitivities in the culture with which you wish 
to work. These include concepts of time, 
physical space, gender role, religious practices, 
political, economic, and social issues in the 
country and with respect to the United States. 
For example, a woman artist going to work 
in a Muslim society should thoroughly famil- 
iarize herself with customs that might restrict 
her access to Muslim communities. Religious 
practices (holidays, fast days) can also affect 
your schedule. Find out the dates of national 
and religious holidays. Will they interfere with 
your work, either because of the national mood 
or the lack of availability of local artists or 
master teachers? Will stores be closed? Do 
you want to observe religious practices? Will 
they be open to you as an outsider? Informal 



Introduction 



informational interviews with regional experts 
in the United States (found through culture- 
specific service organizations and in local 
universities) may facilitate your work by pro- 
viding valuable overseas contacts. 

You should also examine practical matters 
such as climate, food, housing, transportation, 
local and international communications, and 
language interpretation. You should identify 
which supplies you will need to take from the 
United States, and which are available in your 
country of destination, and for what price. If 
you create new work abroad that you cannot 
carry with you on your return, you will want 
to investigate shipping costs. 

Garnering Resources 

Research the resources in the country you wish 
to visit, while simultaneously learning every- 
thing you can about your home business com- 
munity. Many of your answers, funds and 
contacts will come from state or local sources. 
National resources can also be of tremendous 
assistance. This book has been designed to 
guide you through the extensive network of 
organizations nationwide that can help you 
achieve your international goals. 

A good place to begin your search is the 
local chamber of commerce. Contact that of- 
fice to find out if your country of destination 
does business with your community. Identify 
common interests, evaluate how they coincide 
with yours, and begin thinking of ways to 
develop a relationship based on possible shared 
interests. In addition, contact your state and 
local governments through the appropriate 
arts agencies; many work internationally with 
Sister Cities International or Partners of the 
Americas. Some are engaged in specific ex- 
change programs as well. For example, 
Oklahoma's State Arts Council and the state's 
Tourism and Recreation Department, jointly 
funded six Oklahoma groups to go to Mexico 
to perform at the Oktoberfest in Guadalajara, 
Jalisco (Oklahoma's sister state through Part- 



ners of the Americas). 

When applying to a private funder or a 
government funding program, keep the fol- 
lowing in mind. First, if they request a work 
sample, submit one of the highest quality. The 
importance of this aspect of your proposal 
cannot be overemphasized. An intelligently 
written application cannot counteract a me- 
diocre work sample. If your work sample 
compels, your proposal may receive the ben- 
efit of the doubt, but not vice versa. You may 
even consider developing a new work sample 
that draws a clear connection between your art 
and your project abroad. Your work sample 
should be as relevant as possible to the work 
you intend to do abroad. 

If there is a formal application or instruc- 
tions on how to submit proposals, read them 
carefully and do exactly what is requested. 
Most hinders have program officers who can 
provide technical assistance by phone once 
you are thoroughly familiar with the applica- 
tion requirements. Important points to high- 
light in your proposal might be: artistic excel- 
lence and achievements; why you have chosen 
your country of destination; the planning you 
have done to make the project feasible; and 
why you wish to work abroad at this point in 
your career. Respond directly to any questions 
posed and be as specific as possible about col- 
laborators and contacts abroad. Costs should 
be accurate and reflect in-depth research and 
planning. Finally, choose your supporting ma- 
terials judiciously. Send only the required 
materials, not everything available. The more 
concise your application, the more it will hold 
its readers' attention. Those reviewing grant 
applications consider a huge amount of mate- 
rial and rarely have the time to read every 
word. 

Preparing for Travel 

As your plans solidify, you may want to seek 
assistance from the embassy of your country of 
destination. When calling, ask for the cultural 



Introduction 



attache. Be clear about the kind of information 
you require and build in waiting time for the 
attache to gather the information you need. 
Embassies can help you in a variety of ways. 
Many m aintain connections in their home 
countries with arts organizations, festival orga- 
nizers, and exhibition planners looking for 
U.S. artists to participate in events abroad. The 
embassy's cultural staff may also be familiar 
with foreign arts organizations interested in 
international exchange or institutions that ad- 
vance cultural awareness about their home 
countries. 

As you prepare to travel, you might con- 
tact relevant domestic and foreign commercial 
airlines. Corporate giving policies vary, so ask 
for specific guidelines and application advice; 
remember to approach both national and re- 
gional airline marketing offices, as their giving 
policies often differ. U.S. and foreign airlines 
occasionally donate airline tickets or cargo 
space or may offer discount fares to nonprofit 
organizations or individuals of significant ar- 
tistic achievement. As each request is consid- 
ered separately, try to be as detailed as possible 
in your application letter. Describe your proj- 
ect and try to illustrate how your international 
arts activities may benefit the airline's cor- 
porate agenda. 

You may need to obtain a visa to work 
abroad and you should allow ample time for 
the visa application process. Requirements for 
U.S. citizens and permanent residents of the 
U.S. vary from country to country. To obtain 
information on requirements for your country 
of interest, contact the nearest appropriate 
consulate or the embassy in Washington, DC. 
(See Part EI.) Before inquiring about specific 
visa regulations, you should be able to provide 
the following information to determine the 
correct visa category: a) the length of time of 
your intended stay; b) the reason for your visit 
- tourism, grant work, or business; c) whether 
you will be paid by an entity in the host 
country; d) the source of your payment or 
grant. With this information, the consulate 



will be able to determine your visa status. 

In addition, ask about any restrictions on 
your activity abroad. For example, artists trav- 
eling to Japan on a grant are not allowed to 
"moon-light," or take on any paid work other 
than that for which they received the grant. 
Also inquire about extensions of stay, should 
you decide to prolong your visit while abroad. 
For example, U.S. citizens traveling in Spain 
for up to three months need only a passport; an 
additional three-month extension may be ob- 
tained from a Spanish police station. Staying 
longer than six months requires either a stu- 
dent or resident visa. Compare these laws with 
Indonesia's, where U.S. tourists may not ex- 
tend their stay beyond two months, unless 
they are traveling on business. 

Hosting Artists from Abroad 

If your international activity focuses on host- 
ing a foreign artist or group in this country, 
much of the preceding information on re- 
search, networking, and fundraising should be 
useful. In addition, you should be aware of the 
special nature of the commitment to host some- 
one from abroad, particularly if the artists' stay 
in your community would be their first in- 
depth experience in the United States. Re- 
moved from their usual support networks, 
most artists will expect that their hosts will 
help them set up social as well as work related 
activities, just as they would do for U.S. artists 
visiting in their country. This is especially true 
if the artists speak limited English. These ac- 
tivities might include educational field trips to 
sites of interest, social gatherings, professional 
introductions to others in their field, or being 
available to lend a helping hand throughout 
the residency period. Volunteers who support 
your organization as well as local International 
Visitors Councils are likely resources to help in 
this regard. 

A foreign artist's knowledge of your orga- 
nization and expectations may differ from 
those of U.S. artists. Artists from abroad could 



10 



Introduction 



have more than the usual number of questions 
about work space, schedules, materials, accom- 
modations, food preparation, finances, social 
activities, etc. To avoid possible misunder- 
standings, provide very specific information, 
preferably in writing, to each visiting artist on 
these issues. 

If you are bringing international artists to 
present to your audiences, it is important to 
plan for adequate community outreach both to 
local immigrant groups and to other audiences 
you have identified for this work. If you are 
hoping to expand your audiences through this 
international presentation, you should build 
in sufficient lead time to foster communication 
with diverse cultural groups. 

To take fullest advantage of the visit of 
your guest artists from abroad, it is useful to 
plan lecture/demonstrations, workshops, mas- 
ter classes or other opportunities for interac- 
tion with local artists and interested commu- 
nity members. Working collaboratively with 
schools, universities, community centers, and 
culture-specific organizations can lead to the 
development of excellent educational materi- 
als about the artists and the art forms that they 



represent, and this will attract broader, better 
informed audiences to your presentations. 

Conclusion 

The International Program staff compiled the 
information in this guide to lead you through 
the process of planning and raising funds for 
international arts exchange. In so doing, we 
hoped to circumvent many of your blind calls, 
while at the same time, providing ideas and 
fresh insights on developing new and effective 
project related contacts. There is no way around 
the time-consuming nature of this work, but 
we hope our efforts help you make better use 
of your time as your ideas evolve into plans. 

Please let us know if you find the infor- 
mation useful. We also want to hear about 
unnecessary or incorrect entries, and we are 
open to your suggestions for future revisions.

Chapter 2: 

U.S. Government Agencies 



I he most obvious federal sources for art- 
ists working abroad are the National Endow- 
ment for the Arts and the United States Infor- 
mation Agency (USIA). Both government 
agencies sponsor American artistic expression 
abroad. In addition, the Arts Endowment sup- 
ports innovative international endeavors in 
the United States that increase arts audiences 
and deepen the American public's understand- 
ing of the cultural influences from abroad that 
invigorate U.S. society. You will find informa- 
tion on each agency's various programs 
throughout this section. In addition to these 
funding initiatives, the Arts Endowment and 
USIA have become important resources for 
information and contacts abroad because of 
the wealth of knowledge they each possess 
about international arts activities. 

Beyond the Arts Endowment and USIA, 
the federal government probably isn't the first 
source that comes to mind for your interna- 
tional work in the arts. Yet other federal agen- 
cies may be able to provide assistance and 
should not be overlooked. For example, the 
Smithsonian Institution has a separate Office 
of International Relations that has, in the past, 
conducted artistic and cultural exchanges. The 
Department of Housing and Urban De- 
velopment, while restricted by a lack of funds, 
can also serve as an excellent resource for 
referrals for architects and design artists. A 
more complete list follows. 

Finally, you may find it useful to contact 
state and local arts agencies; many work inter- 
nationally through Sister Cities International 
or Partners of the Americas. Some administer 
programs of their own. 

According to the Arts Endowment's 1994 
survey, approximately two thirds of state 
arts agencies currently support international 
activities. In 1992, the National Assembly of 
Local Arts Agencies conducted a similar sur- 



vey on the local level revealing that 51.9 per- 
cent of 208 respondents were involved in 
international arts exchange. You will find a list 
of those agencies that responded positively to 
these surveys in Part II. If you do not see yours 
listed, however, do not assume it is due to a lack 
of interest. Many existing programs were 
prompted by constituent calls. Yours could be 
the next inspiration. 

NATIONAL ENDOWMENT FOR 
THE ARTS 

The International Program 

The Arts Endowment's International Program 
assists a broad spectrum of artists and arts 
organizations through advocacy, informational 
services (such as national workshops, publica- 
tions and individual counseling) and modest 
grantmaking activities. You will find a list of 
funding categories within the International 
Program below. Please note that several Inter- 
national Program categories are administered 
by outside arts organizations. In these cases, 
applications and letters of intent should be 
sent directly to the addresses listed. 

International Projects Initiative (IPI) 

IPI offers grants to U.S. cultural nonprofit 
organizations to support sustained partner- 
ships, artistic exchange, or collaborations with 
artists and organizations abroad. Such partner- 
ships may involve any artistic discipline and 
may take place in the U.S. or in another 
country. 

Through this category the International 
Program seeks to support exemplary arts 
projects that demonstrate: 

♦ significant expertise in and sensitivity 
to the foreign culture(s) involved; 



13 



U.S. Government Agencies 



♦ responsiveness to the needs of the 
applicant organization's own community/ 
constituency; 

♦ efforts to impart benefits of interna- 
tional interchange to other organizations 
and/or wider audiences. 

The International Program encourages 
applications from U.S. nonprofit organiza- 
tions serving the diverse cultural communi- 
ties in this country for projects that involve 
interaction with their cultures of origin and/ 
or that establish ties with other cultural com- 
munities. In addition, the Program encourages 
project applications that promote the pres- 
ervation of traditional, community based skills 
in the face of global industrialization and ur- 
banization. 

The Program welcomes new organiza- 
tional initiatives and is equally concerned 
with strengthening existing programs that 
meet the Initiative's overall goals. Organiza- 
tions should not propose projects that are 
beyond their staff and financial means or 
that can be sustained only with continued 
Arts Endowment funding. 

Limitations: No grants to individuals. 

Application Procedure: Contact the Inter- 
national Program for IPI guidelines.

Please note: You may request guidelines from 
the receptionist. The Program Specialist will 
answer further questions after you have read 
Program materials. 

Arts Link 

ArtsLink enables U.S. artists and arts organi- 



zations to work collaboratively with their 
counterparts, both in this country and in the 
former bloc countries of Central Europe, East- 
ern Europe, the former Soviet Union, and the 
Baltics. ArtsLink has two main components: 
ArtsLink Collaborative Projects and ArtsLink 
Fellowships. 

ArtsLink Collaborative Projects supports 
U.S. artists working on mutually beneficial 
projects with colleagues abroad. U.S. artists

United States/Japan Creative Artists' 
Fellowships 

The United States/Japan Creative Artists' Fel- 
lowships are six-month fellowships in Japan. 
The fellowships are designed to allow five U.S. 
artists who create original work to pursue their 
individual artistic goals and interests by living 
in Japan, observing developments in their field 
and meeting with their professional counter- 
parts in Japan. Potential applicants should con- 
sider how exposure to Japan and its contem- 
porary or traditional arts and culture might 
provide an important influence on their cre- 
ative work; in what ways working in Japan is 
consistent with their artistic vision; and how 
the activities they plan to pursue in Japan will 
enhance their creative goals. 

There are no requirements for artistic cre- 
ation, teaching, or public demonstration while 
in Japan. In addition, there are no structured 
institutional affiliations or living arrangements 
for fellows, allowing each artist maximum 
flexibility in designing his or her own fellow- 
ship activities. International House in Tokyo 
will help make introductions into the artistic 
community throughout Japan and will assist 
selected artists with the logistics of settling in 
for their six-month stay. 

United States/Canada/Mexico Creative 
Artists' Residencies 

The United States/Canada/Mexico Creative 
Artists' Residencies are designed to enable 
twenty U.S. artists (ten in Canada, ten in 
Mexico) to have structured interaction with 



15 



U.S. Government Agencies 



colleagues and interested audiences in Canada 
or Mexico. Artists are matched with host sites 
for two-month residencies during which they 
can observe artistic developments in their 
fields, expand their understanding of an art 
form, and create new work drawing inspira- 
tion from their experience abroad. An integral 
part of these residencies will be public activities 
such as master classes, workshops, in-school 
residencies, collaborations with civic organi- 
zations and lecture demonstrations designed 
jointly by the host organization and the visit- 
ing artist. Artists should anticipate dedicating 
up to eight hours a week to these activities. 

U.S. arts organizations please note: Com- 
plementing these opportunities for U.S. art- 
ists, Canada and Mexico will each send ten 
artists (twenty total) for two-month residen- 
cies with U.S. arts organizations. If you are 
interested in hosting Canadian or Mexican 
visiting artists, call the International Program 
to request the Host Organization Program 
Announcement. 

Limitations: Candidates must select Japan, 
Canada, or Mexico and may not apply for 
more than one fellowship or residency in a 
given year. Candidates are ineligible if, within 
the last ten years, they have spent more than 
three months working professionally in the 
country they wish to visit.

U.S. INFORMATION AGENCY 

(USIA) 

The United States Information Agency is an 
independent foreign affairs agency within the 



executive branch of the U.S. Government. 
USIA's educational and cultural activities are 
conducted to advance its mission of promoting 
mutual understanding between the United 
States and other nations. 

Your major point of contact at USIA will 
be the Bureau of Educational and Cultural 
Affairs, which oversees numerous programs 
and services for arts and cultural exchange. 
The Bureau of Broadcasting may also be of 
assistance for radio and other forms of interna 
tional communication regarding the arts. The 
following is a descriptive listing of USIA's 
various programs. For detailed information, 
please contact the appropriate USIA office. 

The agency maintains more than 200 U.S. 
Information Service (USIS) "posts" staffed by 
American foreign service officers and foreign 
nationals in more than 120 countries. (The 
U.S. Information Agency is known as USIS 
abroad.) See Part II for a complete list of USIS 
posts. 

Bureau of Educational and Cultural 
Affairs 

Within this Bureau, you may seek assistance 
from Arts America, the Office of Cultural 
Centers and Resources, the Office of Aca- 
demic Programs, the Office of Citizen Ex- 
changes, the Office of International Visitors 
and the Cultural Property Staff. 

Arts America 

Arts America administers programs aimed at 
increasing foreign understanding of the diverse 
creative arts of the United States. Arts America 
resources are highly targeted to reach audi- 
ences in countries with limited exposure to 
American culture. Arts America's activities 
are developed in response to requests from 
U.S. Embassies abroad. Expert panels drawn 
from the U.S. arts community review the 
artistic merit of U.S. artists to work abroad and 
make recommendations for USIA support. In 



16 



U.S. Government Agencies 



addition to its program activities, Arts America 
can assist privately-sponsored arts initiatives 
abroad by providing referrals, information and 
contacts in other countries. Arts America also 
supports the Fund for U.S. Artists at Interna- 
tional Festivals and Exhibitions. (See page xx.) 
With the exception of its Creative Arts Ex- 
changes Division, Arts America is not a grant 
application program. Rather it develops pro- 
grams to meet specific U.S. Embassy needs.

Within Arts America there are several pro- 
grams or areas of concentration: 

Artistic Ambassador Program 

This program is designed to enhance cross- 
cultural exchange by sending new musical tal- 
ent abroad to perform and act as exponents of 
American music. Artistic Ambassadors give 
regular public concerts and lecture-recitals and 
may conduct master classes and workshops. 
Eligible musicians are sought from music 
schools, conservatories, colleges and universi- 
ties throughout the United States. They must 
be citizens of the United States, and at least 21 
years of age. Auditions are held each fall in 
various locations throughout the United States. 
Judges evaluate musical ability and suitability 
as a "good will ambassador." Instruments re- 
quested vary each year. 

Performing Arts Program 

Every year Arts America sponsors a limited 
number of fully-funded dance, music and the- 
ater presentations abroad. Artists are selected 
based on criteria that include artistic excel- 
lence and an ability to explain and demonstrate 



their art. This last criterion is important be- 
cause in addition to performances, overseas 
tours often involve workshops, master classes 
and receptions. Arts America, in cooperation 
with the sponsoring U.S. embassy, provides 
international travel, living expenses, perfor- 
mance fees and technical arrangements. They 
concentrate their efforts in countries where 
American performers rarely appear com- 
mercially. Sponsorship and facilitative assis- 
tance by Arts America is generally limited to 
professional performing artists and groups. 
Arts America does not support amateur or 
community groups, or any groups below uni- 
versity age. 

Speaker and Cultural Specialist Program 

This program is designed to foster the ex- 
change of ideas in the areas of creative and 
performing arts. Expert practitioners of the 
arts are recruited in response to requests made 
by U.S. embassies and foreign cultural and 
educational institutions. Arts America speak- 
ers usually spend two weeks abroad in two or 
more countries lecturing; American cultural 
specialists spend up to six weeks in one country 
working and consulting with foreign colleagues, 
as well as conducting workshops and master 
classes. 

Fine Arts Exhibitions 

Arts America funds exhibitions which are pre- 
sented under the auspices of U.S. embassies. 
Proposals from U.S. museums and indepen- 
dent curators are reviewed by a panel which 
makes recommendations to Arts America. The 
Arts America staff selects projects for devel- 
opment that meet program needs of USIS posts 
overseas. The staff works with the selected 
U.S. organizer to prepare the exhibition and 
set the itinerary, usually from ten to fifteen 
venues in a two- to three-year period. The exhi- 
bitions are presented at major foreign muse- 
ums and at American cultural centers in all 



17 



U.S. Government Agencies 



parts of the world. The Arts America fine arts 
exhibition program is not a grant applica- 
tion program and is not intended to provide 
support for international exhibition tours 
whose venues have already been determined. 
Curators may contact Arts America for addi- 
tional information. 

BNC Circuit 

The BNC Circuit is a small program with 
limited funding administered by Arts Ameri- 
ca. Under this program, small U.S. performing 
arts groups and visual arts exhibitions travel to 
binational centers across Latin America. (See 
page xx). Due to the limited facilities and small 
budgets of mostBNCs, only technically simple, 
small-scale performances and exhibitions are 
considered. For further information, write to 
Arts America. 

Creative Arts Exchanges Division 

The Creative Arts Exchanges Division seeks 
to link American arts and museum profession- 
als and institutions with their counterparts in 
other countries. It accomplishes this goal 
through projects that connect professional 
networks in the United States with USIS cul- 
tural offices at American diplomatic missions 
around the world. 

The American networks provide USIS of- 
fices access to quality arts and museum activity 
in the United States, and vice versa. The divi- 
sion administers a grant program for American 
nonprofit organizations that helps fund such 
international linkages; serves as guide, commu- 
nicator and monitor of the networks created 
by the projects it funds; and encourages pri- 
vate sector support so as to ensure follow-up 
and continuity in the linkages so created. This 
division periodically announces in the Federal 
Register requests for proposals (RFPs) to sup- 
port projects of the highest quality arts endeav- 
ors. (Contact Arts America to be notified of 
RFP dates.)

Within the Office of Cultural Centers and 
Resources, the Centers Management Staff 
may be of interest: 

Centers Management Staff 

Binational Centers (BNCs) are independent, 
self-sustaining, nonprofit institutions estab- 
lished in a number of countries to provide 
cultural and educational programs relating both 
to each institution's home country and to the 
United States. Over 80 percent of these centers 
are located in Latin America, with additional 
centers in Europe and East Asia. Over the past 
several years, USIA has decreased its mone- 
tary support of BNCs, but the agency still 
maintains strong relations with many of 
them. BNCs can provide contacts in the local 
arts community and space for performances, 
exhibitions and/or rehearsals. In addition, they 
may be able to furnish artists fees and publicity 
for U.S. artists wishing to perform or exhibit 
abroad. (See Part II for a list of BNCs by 
country.)

Teaching and Specialized Programs, and the 
Academic Exchanges Division may be of inter- 
est. 

The Division for Advising, Teaching and

Academic Exchanges Division 

This division administers the Fulbright Pro- 
gram, which is divided into awards for post- 
doctoral level scholars (or equivalent), and pre- 
doctoral level scholars. Many of the Fulbright 
grants awarded each year go to scholars or 
practicing artists in music, theater, dance, art 
and art history, and American literature. The 
Council for International Exchange of Schol- 
ars administers the Fulbright Scholar Program 
for artists with an MFA degree, professional 
experience and recognition in their arts field. 
Recipients of these awards use funds to lecture 
at foreign colleges or universities, or to receive 
advanced professional training. Highly quali- 
fied, non-degree artists and craftspeople are 
also considered. The Institute of International 
Education administers the student fellowship 
portion of the Fulbright Program, (up to the 
MFA level for artists). These awards are for 
graduate study, research and practical training. 
Most Fulbright awards are made for specific 
disciplines in specific areas, however, many 
coun-tries have "open" fellowship slots that 
can be filled by persons from any field, includ- 
ing the arts. 

Application Procedure: Contact the Council 



for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES) 
for the Scholar Program (post-MFA), or the 
Institute of International Education for the 
Student Program (pre-MF A) to determine avail- 
ability of fellowships in your country of inter- 
est, and to receive application materials.

between two types of International Visitors 
(TVs): "grantees" and "voluntary visitors." 
Grantees are fully funded, while voluntary 
visitors come at their own expense or at the 
expense of their government and receive pro- 
gramming and facilitative assistance. 

Limitations: Not open to U.S. citizens. 

Application Procedure: This is not an appli- 
cation program. Instead, USIS posts make the 
nominations for these highly competitive grants 
from among an embassy's target audiences 
overseas. International Visitors program ad- 
ministrators in Washington can be contacted

Cultural Property Staff 

The Cultural Property Staff of USIA is the 
focus of U.S. government implementation of 
the 1970 UNESCO Convention on illicit 
trade in cultural property. It administers the 
Cultural Property Advisory Committee, which 
oversees USLVs delegated executive responsi- 
bilities under the Cultural Property Imple- 
mentation Act. This Act provides that coun- 
tries signatory to the 1970 Convention may 
petition the U.S. for import restrictions on 
certain categories of archaeological and ethno- 
logical material, the pillage of which places a 
nation's cultural patrimony in jeopardy. As a 
result of USIA's decisionmaking responsi- 
bilities under the Act, several countries, in- 
cluding El Salvador, Bolivia, Peru and Guate- 
mala, receive U.S. import protection.

COMMISSION 

The Commission supports international arts 
activities primarily for artists working in con- 
temporary forms of art, especially collaborative 
projects and those that reflect the depth and 
breadth of America's multicultural society. 
The Commission emphasizes exchanges of per- 
formances and exhibitions that include venues 
outside the major metropolitan areas. 

Limitations: The Commission will not con- 
sider applications from symphonies and other 
strictly musical groups, solo performing art- 
ists, and amateur and university groups. It does 
not support American museums for staffing 
costs, acquiring objects, cataloguing existing 
collections, or touring exhibitions from collec- 
tions in the United States. 

Application Procedure: Contact the

LIBRARY OF CONGRESS 

Artists working abroad will find the Library of 
Congress an invaluable resource. The Library 
houses publications and films from around the 
world (in many languages) that may be diffi 
cult to locate elsewhere in the United States. If 
you need to conduct in-depth research on your 
country of destination, the Library of Con- 
gress may simplify your work significantly, 
and may warrant a trip to Washington, DC. 
Before visiting the Library of Congress, you 
are advised to conduct preliminary research at 
an appropriate public or academic li-brary to 
identify the materials you need. Preliminary 
"browsing" isn't possible because the Library 
of Congress' collections are housed in re- 
stricted, closed stacks. Also, the Library of 
Congress is a research library, not a lending li- 
brary, so materials cannot be checked out. Re- 
searchers must be over high school age and 
must show photo identification to request mate- 
rials in all of the Library's public reading rooms.

In addition to the main library, the American 
Folklife Center, the Motion Picture, Broad- 
casting, and Recorded Sound Division, and 
the Music Division may be helpful resources 
to working artists. 

American Folklife Center 

The Center is a national advocate for the 
preservation and presentation of American 
folklife. Serving a varied constituency, the 



center offers a wide range of programs (field 
projects, conferences, exhibitions, workshops, 
concerts, publications) and services (advisory 
assistance, research and archival facilities, and 
equipment loan). In addition, it maintains rela- 
tions and coordinates programs with the Arts 
and Humanities Endowments, the Smithson 
ian Institution, and the National Park Service.

est motion pictures registered for copyright 
(1896-1912) to current feature films, television

NATIONAL ENDOWMENT FOR 
THE HUMANITIES 

The National Endowment for the Humanities 
supports research in the humanities under- 
taken by individual scholars through a number 
of programs in the Division of Fellowships and 
Seminars, including six- to twelve-month fel- 
lowships and summer stipends. Collaborative 
projects are supported through the Division of 



Research Programs. Projects in the history of 
the arts, literary studies, philosophy, and other 
humanities disciplines are eligible. Research 
may be conducted in this country or abroad. 

In addition, the Humanities Endowment 
supports fellowship programs administered by 
research libraries and museums and other inde- 
pendent centers for advanced study. The fel- 
lowships awarded by each center enable schol- 
ars to pursue research in the humanities while 
benefiting from collegial association with schol- 
ars in other disciplines or areas of interest. In 
1994-95, the following American overseas cen- 
ters will offer NEH fellowships: American 
Academy in Rome, American Institute of In- 
dian Studies, American Research Center in 
Egypt (Cairo), American Research Institute in 
Turkey (Ankara and Istanbul), American 
School of Classical Studies in Athens, and the 
Cyprus American Archaeological Research 
Institute (Nicosia). Individual scholars must 
apply directly to the centers. A list of centers 
offering NEH fellowships may be obtained 
from the Centers and International Research 
Organizations Program. 

The Humanities Endowment also supports 
fellowships and other grant programs in the 
humanities administered by scholarly organi- 
zations with expertise in the promotion of 
research on foreign cultures. Examples are the 
humanities programs of the Committee for 
Scholarly Communication with China and the 
programs of the International Research and 
Exchanges Board for research in Eastern Eu- 
rope, Mongolia, and the republics formerly a 
part of the Soviet Union. Individual scholars 
must apply directly to the organizations. A full 
list is available from the Centers and Interna- 
tional Research Organizations Program. 

Limitations: Degree candidates and persons 
seeking support for work in pursuit of a degree 
are not eligible; foreign nationals are not eli- 
gible unless they have lived in the United States 
for the three years immediately preceding the 
application deadline for the fellowship.

STATE AND LOCAL AID 

State and local arts agencies often provide the 
opportunity for resident artists and arts organi- 
zations to reach new audiences abroad. They 
also serve to enrich the cultural life of a state, 
city, town, suburb, or rural area through ex- 
posure to visiting foreign artists. The SAAs 
and LAAs listed in Part II provide some funds 
for international work. One initiative de- 
serves special note. The Ohio Arts Council's 
international arts initiative, Arts 2000, has been 
in operation since 1987. The program received 
its impetus from then Governor Richard 
Celeste's interest in promoting the state's cul- 
tural resources to other countries. Since 1989, 
approximately 100 Ohio artists have been able 
to reach audiences abroad through this pro- 



gram, which also introduced artists and exhib- 
its from Japan, China, and Russia to Ohio 
audiences. 

VISA INFORMATION 

If you are an agent, manager, or presenter who 
wishes to bring a foreign artist or group to the 
United States to perform, you must petition 
the Immigration and Naturalization Service 
(INS) to authorize a U.S. Consulate to issue 
the necessary visa(s) for the artist(s) and es 
sential support personnel. The steps you must 
take to petition for and obtain a U.S. visa for a 
foreign artist or group are outlined below. As 
the guidelines for petitioners are subject to 
change, only the basic rules are outlined. You 
may want to consult an immigration lawyer 
for answers to specific questions. 

Step 1: Requesting Information 

Call the nearest local U.S. Immigration and 
Naturalization Service (INS) to request an I- 
129 Booklet which contains an Application 
Form 1-129 and the associated instructions. 
Allow ten working days for the booklet to 
arrive. In addition, you may want to look up 
the INS regulations themselves in Volume 8 of 
the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Sec- 
tions 214.2(o) and (p). This is the most reliable 
source of correct procedures. The CFR can be 
found in any law library. 

Step 2: Determining Visa Classifications 

As you will see when you read through the INS 
booklet, INS regulations designate a O" and 
"P" visas for foreign artists and entertainers, 
including the classifications within each visa 
category. The regulations describe these vari- 
ous visa classifications, the relevant proce- 
dures, and the documents needed to support 
petitions for each classification. 

Note that the current edition of the 1-129 
instruction booklet (published in 1991) is out- 



27 



U.S. Government Agencies 



dated and does not reflect the correct require- 
ments or procedures. Therefore, until INS 
issues a new instruction booklet, use extreme 
caution in applying for the "O" and T" visas, 
and above all, file your petition(s) as far in 
advance as possible (up to six months) so that 
there will be ample time to correct problems. 
You can use the regulations' descriptions of 
"O" and "P" visas, the 1-129 form, and the 
"O" and "P" visa supplements to the 1-129, 
which are all up-to-date. 

"O" Visas 

There are two categories of "O" visas: O-l and 
0-2. O-l visas apply to individual artists with 
extraordinary ability who are temporarily vis- 
iting the United States to pursue their art form. 
These artists must demonstrate sustained na- 
tional or international acclaim for their ex- 
traordinary artistic accomplishments. 

Thus, in addition to submitting a properly 
completed 1-129 form, an "O* visa supple- 
ment to the 1-129 form, and the correct fee, you 
will have to provide documentation of the 
artist's extraordinary ability. To do so, you 
must either (a) provide evidence that the artist 
has received a nomination or an actual signifi- 
cant award in the field (the equivalent of an 
Academy Award, Emmy or Grammy Award), 
or (b) provide at least three different types of 
evidence. These include evidence that the artist 
has performed and will perform services as a 
lead or starring participant in productions, 
events, or for reputable organizations and 
establishments; critical reviews or articles; evi- 
dence of commercial or critical success; recog- 
nition from organizations, critics, government 
agencies, or other experts in the field; lesser 
awards/prizes; or evidence that the artist has 
received high compensation relative to others 
in the field. Inaddition, you must show that the 
event for which the artist is applying requires 
the services of an artist of this caliber. 

An 0-2 classification applies to non-citi- 
zens visiting the United States for the sole 



purpose of accompanying or assisting an O-l 
artist in his/her artistic performance. The 0-2 
visa applicant must be an integral part of the 
O-l artist's performance, must possess skills 
and experiences critical to the O-l artist, and 
must have prior experience with the O-l artist. 
These skills cannot be general in nature. For 
example, an experienced operator of a sound 
system who knows the "correct sound" for an 
O-l artist is eligible for an 0-2 visa. Managers 
and agents are considered essential support 
personnel. You may combine all the support 
personnel necessary to accompany an O-l art- 
ist in one 0-2 petition; however, you cannot 
include 0-2 personnel in an O-l petition. 

V Visas 

There are three categories of "P" visas: P-l, 
P-2, and P-3. A P-l visa applies to interna- 
tionally acclaimed ensembles or groups, as 
opposed to individual artists. These ensembles 
must have been recognized in their fields for a 
substantial period of time, and have performed 
regularly for at least one year under the group 
name used in the petition. Seventy-five per- 
cent of the P-l artists must be integral mem- 
bers of the group, usually for at least one year 
(subject to exceptions in case of unanticipated 
emergency and of expansion of a group for 
touring purposes). Your petition must include 
an alphabetical list of the group's members 
and the exact dates of their regular employ- 
ment with the group. You will also have to 
submit supporting materials to document the 
group's international acclaim and existence for 
at least one year, generally with the same type 
of documentation required for the O-l visas. 
National acclaim may suffice in some cases. 

The P-2 classification applies to artists com- 
ing to the United States under a reciprocal 
exchange agreement between the United 
States and an organization in one or more 
foreign country. At this writing, only a few 
such agreements exist between U.S. labor orga- 
nizations and their foreign counterparts. Little 



28 



U.S. Government Agencies 



documentation is required for this classifica- 
tion besides the advisory opinion discussed 
below. 

The P-3 classification applies to artists and 
entertainers participating in culturally unique 
programs. A P-3 artist must be recognized for 
excellence in presenting a unique traditional, 
ethnic, folk, cultural, musical, theatrical, or 
other artistic program. A P-3 artist may also be 
recognized for teaching or coaching such a 
program. Further, the culturally unique pro- 
gram must incorporate a style, method or 
medium of artistic expression unique to a 
particular country, nation, society, class, 
ethnicity, religion, tribe, or other group. 

If you apply for a P-3 visa, you must 
include in your application two of the follow- 
ing three types of documentation that artists 
have: (a) performed the culturally unique mate- 
rial for a substantial period of time; achieved 
national or international recognition as shown 
in published materials; (c) achieved recogni- 
tion from an educational, governmental, or 
cultural agency, or from a recognized expert in 
the field. Each P-3 application must also in- 
clude one or two letters from a recognized 
expert(s) in the field, attesting to the group's 
authenticity and excellence, and its level of 
recognition in a country. The letter must pro- 
vide detailed credentials for its author. 

You may include all individuals applying 
for a single type of "P" visa in one application. 
However, support personnel needed to assist 
or accompany applicants for a P" visas require 
separate petitions, just as the 0-2 petition is 
separate from its O-l counterpart. The appro- 
priate visas for support personnel for P-l, P-2, 
and P-3 visa applicants are, respectively, P-1S, 
P-2S, and P-3S. 

Step3: Obtaining a Written Advisory 
Opinion 

All "O" and "P" petitions must be accompa- 
nied by a written advisory opinion, or a "no 
objection letter" from the national office of an 



appropriate labor organization, such as the 
American Federation of Unions, the American 
Guild of Musical Artists, or the International 
Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees. To 
obtain such an opinion, forward a copy of the 
petition and the essential supporting document- 
ation to the appropriate union at least one 
week before you plain to submit the petition. 

Step 4: Submission of Materials 

When submitting the above materials, you 
must include signed contracts or a summary 
of the essential terms of any oral agreements 
with the artist and an itinerary listing the name 
of each sponsor or presenter, the date and 
location of each performance throughout the 
period of the intended visit, and the essential 
compensation terms. 

The petition may not be filed more than 
six months before the starting date of the 
artist's services in the United States. The turn- 
around time is three to six weeks, depending 
on the particular INS Service Center and the 
completeness of the petition. Be sure to follow 
the INS instruction carefully for filing details 
such as place of filing, number of copies, etc. 
All petitions for artists and support personnel 
must be filed in duplicate . In addition, there are 
special procedures for emergency expedit- 
ed petitions that are specific to each INS Ser- 
vice Center. Emergency requests are not auto- 
matically granted; they must be fully justified. 

The current filing fee is $70, plus $10 for 
each worker included in the application. For 
example, for an ensemble of eight with two 
essential support personnel, the total fee will 
be $240: [$70 + ($10 x 8)] - $150 for the en- 
semble; [$70 + ($10x 2)] - $90 for the support 
personnel. 

Send all materials via air courier (so that 
you have a delivery receipt) to one of the 
following INS Regional Service Centers:

Chapter 3: 

Corporations and Foundations 



V orporations and foundations can be an ex- 
cellent resource for artists who wish to work 
abroad. This chapter identifies those that will 
consider support for international arts pro- 
grams. Some private funders demonstrate a 
consistent interest in international work. For 
most, however, this is not a priority. Many 
fund arts activities, others fund international 
exchange, but rarely does a private supporter 
combine the two. Searching for funding is by 
no means hopeless. You may not find an ex- 
plicitly stated interest in international arts fund- 
ing, however, many private funders will be 
open to the idea if it furthers their own mis- 
sion. The more information you have about a 
potential funder, the easier it will be to identify 
that mission. Most foundations and corpora- 
tions provide guidelines to potential appli- 
cants. In these cases, be sure to call or write for 
your copy. Also request the most recent an- 
nual report, which will outline the 
organization's funding priorities. 

Recognizing the idea at the heart of a 
corporation's or foundation's philanthropic 
mission makes it easier to evaluate whether a 
particular project fits a given funder. For ex- 
ample, if a corporation focuses its arts giving 
on education in its areas of operation in the 
United States, an international proposal might 
be considered if it involves returning from 
abroad and teaching children using techniques 
gleaned from the foreign experience. Simi- 
larly, a foundation that states an emphasis on 
international understanding and conflict reso- 
lution will often consider an innovative arts 
proposal with cross-cultural impact. As a 
generalrule, you will find giving guidelines to 
be just that; guidelines that set the funders' 
parameters and lay out the general rules. With- 
in these boundaries, you will often discover a 
flexible approach to the allocation of funds. 



Private funders sometimes impose geo- 
graphic restrictions on international propos- 
als. You will notice throughout this chapter 
that some give only to organizations in certain 
regions of the United States, while others give 
only in "operating locations worldwide." The 
only way to find out exactly which locations 
are eligible is to request the guidelines and 
annual report. 

A final note: It is never too soon to begin 
collecting information from corporations and 
foundations about their giving programs. Some 
have only one application review per year 
while others review applications on a rolling 
basis. Keeping a file of potential funding sources 
can only help, even if an international project 
may be far in the future.

Chapter 4: 

SERVICE ORGANIZATIONS 



f\xs service organizations, which provide in- 
formation and assistance to their fields, do not 
usually serve as hinders, although some do 
incorporate grantmaking activities into their 
programs. Some serve a particular arts disci- 
pline (e.g., the Visual Arts and Galleries Asso- 
ciation, Dansource), others serve the arts in 
general (e.g., Arts International, Volunteer 
Lawyers for the Arts), others serve a particular 
cultural group or country (e.g., Association of 
Hispanic Artists, the Swedish Institute). These 
organizations may provide international con- 
tacts, referrals, technical assistance and/or travel 
grants. 

Often, staff members at service organiza- 
tions are knowledgeable about international 
aspects of their given field. For example, Opera 
America, a national service organization, is 
essentially a domestic organization. However, 
the staff has information about touring prac- 
tices, festivals, competitions and schools world- 
wide in the opera field. The Folger Shakespeare 
Library often hosts visiting fellows and other 
experts on Shakespearean literature who could 
provide information about translations, play 
production, and colleagues abroad. Similarly, 
the Japan Society has extensive contacts in the 
Japanese arts community and would be helpful 
in executing a project in that country. 

Some service organizations (particularly 
the discipline-specific variety), have modest 
membership fees for their services. Often, you 
can pay minimal fees for specific services, such 
as use of a job bank, or subscription to a 
newsletter or other publication, without pay- 
ing for full membership to the organization. In 
any case, service organizations are there to 
serve, and will attempt to do so to the best of 
their ability. 

The service organizations in this chapter 
have been divided into three sections: Arts, 



Culture-Specific and General. The first section 
(Arts) has been organized by discipline and 
includes dance, design arts, folk arts, literature, 
media arts, museum, music, theater, visual arts 
and multidisciplinary arts.The next section 
(Culture-specific) section provides access to or- 
ganizations offering a variety of services for or 
about a given country or cultural group. The 
final section (General) lists non-arts organiza- 
tions, which can provide a surprising amount 
of useful information for international arts 
projects. 

You may want to begin by locating the 
organizations that support your discipline, fol- 
lowed by those that serve your country of 
interest and then those that serve many disci- 
plines and countries. If these organizations 
can't help you with a particular project, ask for 
referrals to other organizations that might. 
Staff members are often linked to a network of 
domestic organizations, one of which might 
serve your needs.

American Dance Festival has pioneered inter- 
national exchange in dance through several 
programs. The International Choreographers 
Residency (ICRJ brings promising choreogra- 
phers to ADF for seven weeks. The variety 
and scope of ADF's performances and classes 
offer choreographers from abroad an opportu- 
nity to immerse themselves in American mod- 
ern dance. Under the International Choreogra- 
phers Commissioning Program (ICCPJ, ADF 
offers six-week residencies to three or four 
previous ICR participants. While in residence, 
they create new dance works for ADF dancers 
which are premiered during ADF's perfor- 
mance season. The Institutional Linkage Pro- 
gram (ILP) developed out of the worldwide 
network of choreographers that emerged from 
ADF's ICR program. Many ICR participants 
are affiliated with major dance institutions in 
their home countries and are eager to build 
upon previous ICR connections. ADF collabo- 
rates with foreign ICR participants and the ap- 
propriate USIS post (see Part II for addresses 
of USIS posts) to create a linkage that meets 
the needs of their international partner. Link- 
ages emphasize the connection of modern dance 
to the traditions of other countries. Finally, on 
a larger scale, ADF periodically organizes 
"mini-ADFs" abroad with the support of an 
international host. These mini-ADFs run for 
two weeks and offer daily classes for students, 
performances by U.S. modern dance compa- 
nies, as well as lecture presentations by ADF's 
faculty. To date, collaborating countries in- 
clude: Japan, Korea, India and Russia.

hibition and/or rehearsal space. In addition, 
BNCs may be able to furnish artists' fees and 
publicity for U.S. artists wishing to perform 
or exhibit abroad. Some countries have 
multiple BNCs, in which case you should 
target your cities of interest and contact the 
BNCs there, as well as the BNC in the 
capital city (indicated by * in the list below). 

A few BNCs participate in the International 
Arts Programming Network which pro- 
vides touring opportunities to a number of 
countries. This pilot network was devel- 
oped so that arts groups from countries with 
binational centers may travel in the United 
States through the six-member circuit of 
U.S. regional arts organizations (RAOs), 
and so that U.S. artists may travel through a 
BNC circuit that currently includes seven 
BNCs in Latin America and Southeastern 
Europe. Performing and visual arts present- 
ers should contact the Director of Programs 
at the Mid-America Arts Alliance for fur- 
ther information. 

Another activity of note is the BNC Circuit, 
a small program with limited funding admin- 
istered by USIA's Office of Cultural Cen- 
ters. Under this program, U.S. performing 
arts groups and visual arts exhibitions travel 
to BNCs across Latin America. Only perfor- 
mances and exhibitions that are small in 
scale and technically simple can be included 
in the Circuit, due to the limited space and 
funds of the BNCs.

however those included in this guide are also 
concerned with fostering cross-cultural ex- 
change. They are good sources of infor- 
mation, especially about large cultural festi- 
vals, exhibitions and top name artists in 
your country of interest. They generally do 
not offer funding to foreign artists, although 
they may support a collaboration between a 
U.S. and local artists. 

Service Organizations (SO) 

Foreign service organizations may serve a 
single arts discipline or the broad cultural 
arena. They are generally private, nonprofit 
organizations with limited funding but exten- 
sive contact lists and knowledge of their 
fields. Service organizations will often be 
most responsive to your inquiries. 

Presenting Organizations (PO) 

These include cultural centers, museums, 
theaters and other organizations that house 
and/or help produce performances or exhi- 
bitions. Those included in this guide have 
expressed an interest in, or have in the past 
worked with international artists. 

Foundations (F) 

These are generally private, nonprofit organi- 
zations, funded by corporate and private 
donations that support arts activities. They 
often have funds for local performances and 
exhibitions, and may bring in international 
artists for collaborations or tours. 



Most countries have national cultural affairs Corporations (C)
