NPN/VAN’s International Program is based on core values of partnership, equity, and leadership development, and rooted in the belief that engagement with others outside our boundaries – whether political, geographic, national, aesthetic, or otherwise – is critical to building our empathy for others, our understanding of ourselves, and a more just world.
Our International Program focuses on two synergistic priorities:
- Critical curatorial exchanges that emphasize exploration, discovery, and collaboration
- Artist touring/exhibitions and engagement between countries
The International Program is open to curators from NPN/VAN Partner organizations who:
- share the values of our International Program
- are committed to presenting international artists
- are interested in collaborating with the other curators to select and host artists
- are able to travel outside the U.S.
- have the capacity to host one or more artists/companies in a U.S. tour
- are committed to NPN/VAN’s fee structure to ensure equitable pay to artists
