CEC ArtsLink Award
ArtsLink Residencies offers artists and arts managers 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. Through a multi-faceted program of cultural exchange, CEC ArtsLink serves to create and sustain constructive, mutually beneficial relationships between the US and 37 countries and regions. Working with artists, arts organizations and community-based institutions, CEC ArtsLink provides an essential structure for ongoing dialogue between the US and these formerly isolated cultures.
