Global Ties U.S. is actively recruiting performing artists from AK, AR, ME, MS, ND, NM, SD, RI, WV, and WY. 

Expo 2020 Dubai takes place between October 1, 2021 and March 31, 2022.  Solo performers and groups of five or less will be considered.  Basic criteria listed below:

  • All members must be U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents with valid passport
  • Performance is representative of their home state or region 
  • Ability to perform on small stages or flexibility to adjust performances to fit various venues
  • Willingness to commit to a 6-8 day program including travel days

Program funding will cover:

  • Round trip international airfare and baggage
  • Hotel accommodations in Dubai
  • Per Diem at the GSA rate 
  • Honorarium for performance days ($300/day)
  • Ground transportation in Dubai
  • PCR testing support in the UAE prior to departure back to U.S.

Performers would not have to apply through our previous application system. They would be vetted by the Department of State and Global Ties U.S. would be reaching out to the acts recommended to confirm their interest and availability in coordination with the USA Pavilion operations team.  Let me know if you have any questions and thanks, as always, for your collaboration and support.
