Phase Two of the Performing Arts Discovery (PAD) program is now accepting applications. The program, which was launched by the National Endowment for the Arts in 2015 to promote US artists to international programmers, festival directors, and venue managers, is managed by the Western Arts Alliance.
For Phase Two, an additional 20 applicants will be selected, and all 30 PAD artists/ensembles will work remotely with the PAD showcase production team beginning March 2022 to develop professionally produced live performance videos to be featured on a dedicated platform and included in selected international online showcases later in 2022.
Applications are open through January 28, 2022, 5pm PT. Learn more.
