Performing Arts Global Exchange (PAGE) is a Mid Atlantic Arts grant program for performing arts presenters nationwide in cooperation with the National Endowment for the Arts. PAGE brings exemplary international music, dance, and theater to audiences across the United States; the current cycle will present U.S. tours in 2022 – 2023. Fee support grants are available to nonprofit presenting venues and units of state, local, or tribal government based anywhere in the U.S. or its territories who book artists from a curated roster. Artists on the roster have not widely toured in the United States and reside in a selected region. This year’s roster features artists based in Australia and New Zealand.
Presenting international artists offers an opportunity to engage in the rich diversity of cultural expression throughout the world, but it also requires resources that aren’t always available. Travel expenses, visas, and routing are often barriers to presenting international artists, especially in the U.S.’s more remote communities. PAGE seeks to ease some of those burdens for U.S. presenters by working with international curators to identify a region’s most exciting, tour-ready artists and provide grant support to bring them to the U.S. PAGE especially seeks to support performances in communities with reduced access to international performing arts due to geography or other features.
