APAP’s Cultural Exchange Fund is a travel subsidy program supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to assist United States-based presenting professionals and their organizations and companies in building partnerships and collaborations with their international peers and help audiences experience the work of artists from around the world in its cultural context.
APAP awards travel subsidies to individual presenting professionals (including agents, managers, and producers), presenting organizations, and groups of presenting professionals traveling to see the work of artists and companies, or to develop and advance projects with international artists and their collaborators.
All applicants must be active members of the Association of Performing Arts Presenters. APAP strongly encourages but does not limit travel to the Middle East, Asia, Latin America, and Africa.
The maximum amount awarded per individual organization, inclusive of travel costs and per diem, is $2,000. Group travel subsidies will be awarded only to groups of three or more individuals from different member presenting organizations. The maximum award for a group is $10,000, with no more than $2,000 awarded per organization in the group.
