Call for application for LA Residence exchange project

DutchCulture, Centre for International Cooperation and the Department of Cultural Affairs of the city of Los Angeles (DCA) announce a new round of the Cultural Exchange International (CEI) grant opportunity. DutchCulture coordinates the participation of the Netherlands in this exchange program.

CEI provides fellowship support to creative professionals (artists – e.g. dancers, designers, musicians, architects, filmmakers, visual artists, etc.; arts administrators; arts/cultural educators and scholars; curators; presenters; creative entrepreneurs; cultural innovators; and cultural experts) who are proposing a creative residency.

How to apply

Their residency proposals must be submitted by an LA-area host organization (or the lead agency of a local consortium). Dutch artists, arts organisations can partner with LA peers for a collaboration project in 2014/2015 and the application for this project can only be submitted to DCA by the LA partner.  

Deadline is December 6th 2013.
