Performances at festivals abroad provide American artists with opportunities to exchange ideas and practices with their colleagues in other countries, as well as to engage with new and larger audiences. It is our hope that participation of exemplary artists from the United States in international festivals will foster greater appreciation of the excellence, diversity and vitality of the American performing arts. USArtists International (USAI) is committed to ensuring that the impressive range of the performing arts in the United States is represented abroad, and that American artists can enhance their creative and professional development through participation at these festivals.
Through USAI, grants are available to American dance, music and theater ensembles and solo performers that have been invited to perform at international festivals and for engagements that represent extraordinary career opportunities anywhere in the world outside of the United States.
