What is Performing Americas Creative Exchange?

The NPN will fund extended creative residencies by Latin American and Caribbean performing artists and arts professionals conducting residencies at NPN and other affiliated sites, and U.S. performing artists and U.S. based arts professionals conducting residencies in Latin America and the Caribbean. The Creative Exchange Program is flexible by design, allowing participating organizations to exercise their creativity in structuring projects. Residencies can support, for example, the creation of a new work, intensive technique workshops and master classes, arts administration and technical theater seminars, and/or the setting of a work by the residency artist on a host company or a group of local artists. Activities such as master classes, lecture demonstrations, and workshops are considered standard practices. Projects may also involve collaborations with other arts and community-based organizations that have parallel institutional purposes

Who should participate?

If you are an artist that would like to travel to Latin America to conduct a 3-5 week residency with a host you know, or if you are a U.S. based arts organization that would like to host an artist from Latin America or the Caribbean, then the Creative Exchange is for YOU! Although the fund is typically only open to NPN Partners and La RED members, through Ford Foundation support, NPN has extended this opportunity to Diverse Spaces Grantees.
