USArtists International Offers Funding for Artists to Perform at Festivals Abroad
USArtists International, a program of the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, is committed to ensuring that the range of expression and creativity of the performing arts in the United States is represented at international festivals abroad.

Grants are available to American dance, music, and theater ensembles and solo artists that have been invited to participate in international festivals outside the United States. Eligible applicants must be dance, music or theater ensembles, including practitioners of folk and traditional forms, that work at a professional level, count a majority of members who are citizens or permanent residents of the U.S., and have 501(c)(3) nonprofit status or have a fiscal sponsor with such status.

Eligible festivals must be sponsored or organized primarily by a non-U.S.-based organization; be international in scope with representation from at least two countries outside the host country, or have a U.S. theme with representation from at least three U.S. performing groups; reach a wide audience and be open and marketed to the general public; provide the applicant with a signed letter of invitation or signed contract to perform at the festival; and provide some support to the invited ensembles in the form of cash remuneration, paid travel-related expenses, or in-kind contributions.

Grants will seldom cover the applicant's total expenses and generally will range from $1,000 to $10,000 each, but will not exceed $15,000.

The deadline is January 8, 2010, for projects taking place between March 1, 2010, and February 28, 2011; and May 3, 2010, for projects taking place between July 1, 2010, and June 30, 2011.
