DCA has just confirmed a new Cultural Exchange International (CEI) partnership with The Bali Purnati Center for the Arts in Bali, Indonesia. The Center is collaborating with DCA to support up to two (2) one-month residencies in FY 2013-2014 for Los Angeles-based creative professionals as their host in Bali. Applicants should apply directly to the LA DCA using the CEI guidelines and application forms, which have been updated to include this opportunity. They can be downloaded at the DCA website (culturela.org). They are also available on the LA Business Assistance Virtual Network at labavn.org (Please note: if you are using labavn.org, you must have an account and be logged in to download the guidelines. No account or log in is necessary to download applications from the DCA website.)

CEI applications are due December 14, 2012. Please call the DCA Grants main line at (213) 202-5566 or email dca.grants@lacity.org with any questions. Thank you.
