International Art Exchanges: The Artists’ Perspective

Monday, October 18, 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

Organized by Deepa Gupta, program officer, The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation; Elspeth Revere, vice president, The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.

Presented by Lane Alexander, founder/artistic director, Chicago Human Rhythm Project; Arlene Crewdson, director, Global Voices (former executive director, Pegasus Players); Bau Graves, executive director, Old Town School of Folk Music.

What do artists and arts organizations gain, in the long and short terms, from international arts exchanges? This session will survey the grantmakers already supporting international arts exchanges and will assess the barriers (additional to funding support) to participation in such exchanges. Artists and grantmakers will share experiences and suggest new ways to approach supporting international projects and programs.
