smARTpower (sm) , an initiative of the Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, administered by The Bronx Museum of the Arts, will send fifteen U.S. artists abroad to work with local artists and young people for periods of up to 45 days to create community-based art projects. Selected artists will design and implement projects within a 45-day period in cooperation with local arts organizations in China, Ecuador, Egypt, Ghana, India, Kosovo, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, the Philippines, Kenya, Sri Lanka, Turkey, and Venezuela. smARTpower projects, which can include painting, sculpture, video, installation, photo-based work, public art, and interdisciplinary projects, are strongly encouraged to create a tangible and lasting legacy that will remain in country. Projects will emphasize community engagement and participation. Artists will address a full range of relevant subjects including, but not limited to, women's empowerment, the environment, health, education, and civic engagement.
