Call for Submissions - PAP Creative Exchange 13-14 


PAP Creative Exchange:  For 3-5 week international cultural exchange residencies in the U.S., Latin America and the Caribbean

Application Deadline:  April 26, 2013, 5pm EST


What is the Creative Exchange?

Are you interested in hosting an artist-in-residence from Latin America or the Caribbean?  The Performing Americas Creative Exchange provides support for extended residencies for artists traveling to the U.S. to work and create in communities in the U.S. with NPN Partner and Ford Diverse Arts Spaces hosts.  This successful program offers a small number of awards to projects ranging from creative residencies to educational intensives.  

But that’s not all!  The program works both ways, and we are also supporting U.S. based artists traveling with their projects to Latin America and the Caribbean.  If you know those that would like to apply to be hosted in Latin America, please share this information with artists in your region.
