Asia Pacific Performance Exchange (APPEX)

Description

The Asia Pacific Performance Exchange (APPEX) is an international musicians and artists residency program that promotes cross-cultural and interdisciplinary understanding; develops rigorous strategies for art-making reflecting the nuances of cultural differences; and fosters new ways to experiment, collaborate, and interpret artistic expression.

A total of five writers and twenty artists will be chosen as Fellows on a competitive basis. Each fellow will receive room and board, roundtrip travel to LA, and a stipend.
