THE MID ATLANTIC ARTS FOUNDATION SUPPORTS PERFORMANCES BY ARTISTS AT INTERNATIONAL FESTIVALS AND MARKETPLACES.
The Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation funds the presentation and touring of performing artists through the USArtists
International program (USAI). This program supports performances by U.S. artists at significant international festivals
and performing arts marketplaces outside the United States and its territories. The program supports the engagements of exemplary solo artists and ensembles across all performing arts disciplines including dance, music, theater, multidisciplinary work, and folk/traditional arts.
USArtists International is designed to encourage and promote the vibrant diversity of U.S. artists and creative
expression in the performing arts by expanding opportunity and exposure to international audiences, encouraging
international cultural exchange, and enhancing the creative and professional development of U.S. artists by
providing connections with presenters, curators, and fellow artists. The program is committed to the presence of
U.S. artists on world stages and aims to extend the reach and impact of professional artists dependent on touring
for continued sustainability and career advancement.
