Opportunity Description

OneBeat is a global music exchange that promotes interpersonal diplomacy and social interaction via musical participation.
For the OneBeat Music Residency 2023, OneBeat is now accepting applications. In the spring and fall of 2023, OneBeat 11 & 12 will bring musicians together for two in-person United States-based arts exchange programs. OneBeat is a project of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State, in partnership with the ground-breaking New York-based music collective Bang on a Can’s Found Sound Nation. It uses collaborative original music as a forceful new method of cultural diplomacy. For one month each season (April-May and September-October), OneBeat will bring 50 musicians (ages 19-35) from up to 50 different nations to the Southern United States to collaborate on the creation, production, and performance of original music as well as the development of strategies for art-based social engagement. OneBeat starts with an initial residence during which Fellows work together to produce unique content, record fresh musical concepts, and launch new initiatives. The OneBeat Fellows then embark on a tour where they provide performances for a variety of American audiences, collaborate with regional artists, and instruct young people. After the program is through, OneBeat artists go back to their home nations to work on projects connected to a network of musically inspired social entrepreneurs.
