China Performing Arts Exchange

Through grants with other funders, the National Endowment for the Arts has a long history of bringing the benefits of international exchange to arts organizations, artists, and audiences nationwide. Recognizing the shared objective to foster partnership and understanding through the arts and culture between the United States and China, the National Endowment for the Arts is creating a performing arts exchange with China.

We will provide support to one U.S. Regional Arts Organization (RAO) for the presentation of exemplary performing artists (solo performers or ensembles) from China in communities across the United States. In addition to performing, interactions between the touring Chinese artists and the American public through residencies, lectures, workshops, and/or school programs are encouraged.

Application Receipt Deadline: August 29, 2016
