ZERO1 is calling innovative new media and digital artists with a love of travel and passion for community-driven art to apply to participate in the second round of the American Arts Incubator.
American Arts Incubator is an international arts exchange program developed in partnership with the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA). The program sends artists abroad to collaborate with youth and underserved populations on community-based new media projects that bolster local economies, address a local social issue, and further social innovation. Artists will be working directly with ZERO1, U.S. embassy officials, and overseas partners to realize a series of public art projects that cultivate individual and community engagement and citizenship internationally.
While the first round of artists are in the midst of their exchanges, we are excited to start looking forward to the next round of artist applicants. Participating overseas locations for the second round are: China, Indonesia, Philippines, and Vietnam. One artist will be selected for each location and will be responsible for creating a public art project plus overseeing a unique "small grants" program to facilitate community-driven art in that location. The deadline to apply is May 31, 2015 by 11:59pm PST.
