Program Description
ArtsLink Projects provides support to US artists, curators, presenters,
and arts organizations undertaking projects in Central Europe, Russia
and Eurasia. Applicants must be working with an artist or organization
in that region and projects should be designed to benefit participants
and audiences in both the US and the host country.

In 2008, applications will be accepted from individual artists,
presenters, and non-profit arts organizations working in dance, music,
theater and literature. ArtsLink has a cycle of alternate year deadlines
according to discipline. In 2009, applications will be accepted from
individual artists, curators, and non-profit arts organizations working
in visual and media arts. Support is provided to:

*	create new work that draws inspiration from interaction with
artists and the community in the country visited;
*	establish mutually beneficial exchange of ideas and expertise
between artists, arts organizations, and the local community;
*	pursue artistic cooperation that will enrich creative or
professional development, or has potential to expand the community's
access to the art of other cultures.

Examples of eligible ArtsLink Projects:

*	A US choreographer collaborating with an Estonian composer on
new work for an Estonian dance company
*	The collaboration between a US translator and Hungarian writer
on the translation and compilation of a body of poetry
*	A US playwright conducting a series of workshops with members of
the Slovenian theater community
*	A US festival director visiting several Central European theater
festivals to see work and present videos of US artists

Review Criteria
The selection process is extremely competitive. Applicants should

compelling reasons for wanting to work in the selected country. All
ArtsLink applications will be evaluated by peer review panels based on
the following review criteria:

*	Artistic excellence and merit of the applicant's work;
*	Quality and feasibility of project plan;
*	Potential for interactive dialogue and benefit of proposed
project to both US applicant and overseas participants;
*	Project's potential to bring the benefit of the cross-cultural
exchange to other artists or audiences in both the US and the
international participant's country.

eligible to apply. In addition, projects focusing solely on research, or
