ABOUT

IA&A’s Cultural Exchange Programs builds cross-cultural understanding through exchanges and partnerships in the arts. We connect individuals, institutions, and communities from around the world through our programs, which include the Exchange Visitor Program and the International Partnership Initiative.

Exchange Visitor Program

IA&A’s Cultural Exchange Programs supports the next generation of creative leaders through educational and cultural exchanges in the arts. Through the Exchange Visitor Program, we provide exchange opportunities and visa assistance for students, professionals, artists, and researchers from around the world participating in programs across the United States. We are a designated J-1 visa sponsor and work specifically with American museums, arts institutions, cultural organizations, and design firms.

International Partnership Initiative

A project of IA&A’s Cultural Exchange Programs, the International Partnership Initiative champions international work between American arts institutions and their counterparts abroad by creating a forum for discussion and discovery among leaders in the artistic, academic, diplomatic, and policy communities. The Initiative’s research and programming facilitate cross-cultural understanding and build stronger ties through global partnerships in the arts.
