new_logo

Deadline: March 31 

Meridian International Center – a non-profit based in Washington, D.C. – is now accepting applications for the 2015-2016 Community Engagement through the Arts Exchange Program for American mural artists.  Funded by the U.S. Department of State’s Cultural Programs Division in the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs with programming support from Meridian, four American artists will travel abroad to collaborate with local youth and underserved populations on community-based projects in the mural arts.  Artists will design, implement and administer a 3.5-week, in-country program based on local community issues for the country specified.  Projects should be designed to advance U.S. foreign policy goals in that country by addressing a local community issue, as youth or women’s empowerment, gender-based violence, social inclusion, regional stability, and the environment.

Meridian is currently accepting applications for projects in Brazil, Cuba, India, and Turkey.  Applications are due by 11:59pm EST on March 31, 2015.
