There are two upcoming International Opportunities offered through TCG. Please contact the e-mail addresses below if you have any questions and would like more information.

1.) Applications and Guidelines for TCG's International Grant Program, Global Connections, Round 2, Cycle B are available on our website. Global Connections encourages reciprocity and cultural exchange throughout the world by supporting the unrestricted travel and projects of professionals working in all aspects of theatre. Recipients may use the funds to pursue theatre-based activities abroad or to host international colleagues within the U.S.

The grants are offered through two separate initiatives:

ON the ROAD travel grants will award five grants of up to $5,000 each, per cycle, to foster new relationships with international colleagues that will inspire each other's work and aesthetics by creating opportunities for cultural exchange. This initiative is open to a broad range of theatre professionals from artists to administrators to those in production areas.

IN the LAB project development grants will award three grants of $10,000 each, per cycle, to further preexisting international collaborations by supporting residencies that either advance research and development of a theatre piece or explore elements leading up to a full production. Projects do not need to result in a final mainstage production.

To read about our most recent Global Connections recipients, please visit our recipients page or read our press release.

If you have any questions, please contact global@tcg.org.

2.) TCG is offering an exciting opportunity for staff at TCG Member Theatres to participate in the U.S.-Cuba Theatre Exploratorium, a one-week theatre research program to Cuba on March 15 – 22, 2013. The TCG Cuba-U.S. Theatre Exploratorium will bring American theatre professionals on an unprecedented intensive exploration of today's theatre scene in Cuba. This comprehensive road trip through mid-western Cuba will give participants the opportunity to meet and experience a broad survey of top regional and national companies. For more information, please contact Kevin Bitterman at kbitterman@tcg.org.

Best,
