About

ArtsLink International Fellowships offer artists and arts managers/curators from eligible overseas countries a five-week residency at an established, non-profit arts organization in the US. The program is designed to create opportunities for artists and communities across the US to share artistic practices with artists and arts managers from abroad and engage in dialogue that advances understanding across cultures.

Host organizations are selected based on an application process open to US non-profit organizations from all fifty US states. Applicants do not need to have contacts with organizations in the US to apply for this program.

ArtsLink International Fellowships is a multi-year program that enable artists and arts managers/curators from eligible countries to:

  • Pursue artistic and/or professional research and collaborations that enrich and enhance their work
  • Share ideas and expertise with US artists and organizations, with residents of the host community, and with colleagues from the region who participate in the program
  •  Expand knowledge of arts practices and deepen understanding of cultural life in the US
  • Expand professional arts management skills through work with US organizations
  • Apply for co-production support for a collaborative project in the U.S.
  • Apply for co-production support for a project with US collaborators in the Fellows’ home country

The ArtsLink Fellowships are funded by the individual supporters of CEC ArtsLink, the Trust for Mutual Understanding, the Kettering Family Foundation, and the Milton & Sally Avery Arts Foundation.
