NEA: Performing Arts Global Exchange Program

Deadline: 15 January 2019

The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) is seeking applications for its program entitled “Performing Arts Global Exchange” to enter into a Cooperative Agreement with a RAO to administer the 2020-21 cycle of PAGE.

Together with the Cooperator, the NEA will identify eligible countries of a chosen region of the world (e.g., North Africa, Southeast Asia, Nordic countries) to highlight biennially.

The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) aims to increase access to quality international arts programming throughout the U.S and to promote a greater understanding of other cultures through the arts.

Through the Performing Arts Global Exchange (PAGE) program, a Cooperator will award subgrants to nonprofit presenting organizations that book artists from an NEA approved roster of international performing artists or ensembles for performances in the U.S. An emphasis will be placed on funding engagements in undeserved communities that have limited access to this type of artistic work. All funded engagements will be required to include public performances and activities that provide audiences with direct interaction with the visiting artists.

  • Project activities may begin on or after June 1, 2019, and may extend for up to 24 months.
