Support for the presentation and touring of performing artists is central to the work of Mid Atlantic Arts
Foundation (“MAAF”). The USArtists International program (USAI) 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 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.
USAI continues the important tradition in the United States of the public and private sectors working
collaboratively to support the arts. USAI is a program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation in partnership with
