Funding Areas

The Bureau’s CAE initiatives are arts-based international people-to-people exchanges that support and further U.S. Department of State foreign policy objectives. Cultural diplomacy, an essential facet of America’s foreign policy, enhances cross-cultural understanding and opens new avenues of dialogue and collaboration between individuals and nations. In support of U.S. foreign policy objectives, Creative Arts Exchange (CAE) initiatives create partnerships through artistic collaboration and professional development opportunities that foster mutual understanding between American and international participants. Under the 2014 Creative Arts Exchange, the ECA Bureau will award one Cooperative Agreement under each theme, not to exceed the given amount for each of the following programs: American Music Abroad ($1,500,000); American Film Showcase ($1,500,000; and DanceMotion USA ($1,300,000).
