Department of State Open Competition: One Beat

CULTURAL PROGRAMS AND EXCHANGES

The Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) announces an open competition for a cultural exchange in music, entitled One Beat.

To find out more information and/or to submit a proposal, visit ECA’s Open Funding Opportunities site. Application deadline is May 16, 2011.

One Beat will highlight artistic collaboration, improvisation, mentoring, and professional training opportunities for young foreign musicians and music professionals through a series of group programs in the United States. One Beat will enhance cross-cultural understanding and demonstrate democratic values such as collaboration, cohesion, and innovation through uniquely designed cohesive group programs which will strengthen the leadership and professional potential of the participants as well as enrich their American counterparts. (One Beat is a programmatic refinement of the existing Fiscal Year 2010 Cultural Visitors program. Only U.S. public and non-profit organizations meeting the provisions described in Internal Revenue code section 26 U.S.C. 501(c)(3) are eligible to submit proposals.)
