The American Arts Incubator is developed in partnership with the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. The program uses digital and new media to promote cross-cultural collaboration, increase awareness, and provide innovative solutions to pressing challenges. These artists will travel to their assigned countries for four weeks to develop public art projects. During such time the artists will lead workshops to teach specific skills, develop project ideas with community participants, and execute a micro-grant program to fund the development of community driven art projects.
