International Cultural Exchange
The Association of Performing Arts Presenters recognizes global artistic exchange is essential to fully engage audiences and communities in the breadth and diversity of performing arts experiences. The Cultural Exchange Fund provides an opportunity for presenting professionals to expand and deepen their knowledge of artists, traditions and cultures from around the world.
Through their CEF Digital Diaries, awardees have the opportunity to detail their international experiences and share photos, video, and key trip information. The International Cultural Exchange Search allows APAP members and the field to explore this shared information to gain insight into successful international exchanges, festivals, and other key performing arts events while abroad.
