International Travel Subsidies for U.S. Arts Presenters

The Cultural Exchange Fund, an initiative of the Association of Performing Arts Presenters, is a travel subsidy program that assists U.S.-based presenters in building partnerships with international touring artists, companies, and their collaborators. The focus of the program is on increasing presenters' knowledge of international performing artists based outside the U.S. and the cultural context for these artists' work. In promoting cross-cultural arts programming, travel to the Middle East, Asia, Latin America, and Africa is strongly encouraged. The maximum amount awarded per individual organization or artist is $2,000. Group travel subsidies of three or more presenters are also available, with a maximum award of $10,000. All applicants must be members of the Association of Performing Arts Presenters. The Round Three deadline has been extended to September 30, 2014. Applications must be submitted online through the Association of Performing Arts Presenters website.

Support for Contemporary Performing Arts Organizations

The MAP (Multi-Arts Production) Fund, administered by Creative Capital, supports original new work in all disciplines and traditions of the live performing arts. MAP assists artists, ensembles, producers, and presenters of a high artistic standard, whose work in the disciplines of contemporary performance embodies a spirit of exploration and deep inquiry. MAP is particularly interested in work that examines notions of cultural difference or "the other," be that in class, gender, generation, race, religion, sexual orientation or other aspects of diversity. Grants range from $10,000 to $45,000, with an average of $25,000. Applications for MAP grants must come from U.S. nonprofit organizations. (Artists or ensembles may apply through a fiscal sponsor.) Applying organizations and artists must demonstrate at least two years of professional experience. The online letter of inquiry process opens September 8, 2014, with a due date of October 3, 2014. Invited proposals must be submitted by December 8, 2014. Visit the MAP website for eligibility information and application guidelines.

A limited number of grants are also made to arts-related organizations that help support the development of theatre and dance, as well as graduate drama departments of private universities. Applications for theatre grants are due December 1, 2014. All other grant applications must be submitted by October 15, 2014.

The application deadline is October 21, 2014.
