The State Department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) has launched Cultural Crossroads, an online network that will provide arts practitioners and managers a venue for sharing information about international cultural exchange.

Through this discussion forum, ECA hopes to improve support for arts-based exchange programs and grow an international network of artists.

ECA invites artists, performers and presenters to share information about international cultural travel performances and opportunities in this Cultural Diplomacy community. The hope is that this new online community will become a valuable resource for artists and artistic collaborators.

Please visit http://connect.state.gov/group/culturalcrossroads to explore and add your voice to this promising new effort!
