Baltimore – July 9, 2024 – Mid Atlantic Arts, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) has announced $171,725 in grant support for 61 engagements through the 2024-2025 Performing Arts Global Exchange (PAGE) program. Engagements will take place across 28 states in all six Regional Arts Organizations’ jurisdictions.

PAGE is a national grant program designed to increase availability of international performing arts programming throughout the United States in order to promote greater cultural understanding through the performing arts. PAGE provides fee support grants to nonprofit presenting venues that program artists from the roster. All funded engagements include a public performance and community engagement activity that fosters direct interaction between audiences and touring artists. The 2024-2025 touring roster features artists from Colombia and Brazil.

Mid Atlantic staff selected five curators from Brazil and Colombia to nominate artists for inclusion on the roster. Performing arts presenters nationwide completed an online survey to gather feedback on the potential roster artists before the final touring roster was announced.

The 2024-2025 engagements include:

Espiral 7 (Colombia)

Las Guaracheras (Colombia)

Luciane Dom (Brazil)

Luedji Luna (Brazil)

La Muchacha (Colombia)

PAGE grantees are selected through an agreement with each roster artist’s agents or representatives. Based on fees negotiated between presenters and total allocations for fee subsidies for each artist, agents recommended subsidy amounts for each engagement to Mid Atlantic Arts for review and approval. Staff worked closely with agents to maximize the broadest possible bookings and allocation of fee support nationwide.

PAGE is a program of Mid Atlantic Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) with additional funding for the tours of Luciane Dom and Luedji Luna from the Instituto Guimarães Rosa.
