“NET links a diverse array of ensembles and practitioners to one another and the performing arts field, encouraging collaborations and knowledge building/dissemination.” -- NET Mission Statement
The NET Travel & Exchange Network (NET/TEN) prioritizes relationship building and knowledge sharing. The grants are intended to create new opportunities for reciprocal exchanges with peers and colleagues to share information, techniques, inspiration, expertise, and performances among ensembles to strengthen the work of individual ensembles and the field as a whole. NET/TEN grants encourage open-ended explorations without the pressure of finished products or projects; they are designed to be flexible and to support a wide range of activities.
The NET/TEN program is supported by lead funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
