NEA adds Canada residency

Developed somewhat along the lines of a NAFTA agreement for the arts, the National Endowment for the Arts has decided to expand its artists residency program with Mexico to now include Canada.

The agreement is expected to get official ratification today when Canadian Foreign Minister Andre Ouellet meets with NEA chairman Jane Alexander and Rafael Tovar, president of Consejo Nacional para la Cultura y las Artes.

The meeting will be held at the Canadian Embassy in Washington D.C.

During the coming year, the three countries will jointly host some 60 artists residencies, giving artists the chance to spend eight weeks abroad to share their talents and insights.

The NEA has set aside $ 150,000 to sponsor the American artists, while Mexican and Canadian artists (who, in turn, visit the U.S.) are funded by their own country’s national cultural funds.
