The goal of the Lighton International Artists Exchange Program (LIAEP) is to encourage and reward dedicated artists with the unique opportunities afforded by travel for the exchange of ideas and expertise between peers. LIAEP seeks to break boundaries and will award funds to a foreign artist traveling to the United States or a U.S. citizen to a foreign country. The program is especially interested in funding artists who have not yet worked in a foreign country and in funding travel and residencies to countries that are less Westernized. Artists from Kansas City and the Central Plains/Midwest region receive first priority for funding.

The deadline for applications is February 28th, 2017.
