Asian Cultural Council
The Asian Cultural Council (ACC) is the only organization in the world whose sole mission is to support cultural exchange between the United States and Asia and within the countries of Asia. Headquartered in New York city, the ACC maintains offices in Hong Kong and Tokyo with partner Foundations in Manila and Taipei. Grants are awarded for research and creative projects across a wide spectrum of the performing and visual arts, and across both traditional and contemporary concentrations. Some grants are also made to educational and cultural organizations engaged in projects of special significance to Asian-American exchange. The ACC is both a grant-making and grant-seeking organization, raising funding from corporate, foundation and individual donors in both the United States and Asia.
The ArtsLink Residencies program offers artists and arts managers from Eastern and Central Europe, Russia, Central Asia and the Caucasus a five-week residency at an established, non-profit arts organization in the US. Host organizations are selected by CEC staff from an application process open to US non-profit organizations from all fifty US states. Applicants do not need to have any contacts with organizations in the US to apply for this program.
Mairie de Paris
Nearly 10 years ago, the Mayor’s Office of the City of Paris developed a residency program with cities abroad, in Europe and America, launching new initiatives to increase international cultural exchanges. Through these initiatives, opportunities have been created for foreign artists to live and work in Paris. The City of Paris directly manages five studio apartments at the Cité Internationale des Arts dedicated to foreign artists and, as part of the program, has developed this residency in visual arts between New York and Paris. www.paris.fr
