International
Exchange

ZERO1 coordinates international artist exchanges that encourage mutual understanding and cross-border collaboration between creative communities around the globe. Our flagship creative exchange program, American Arts Incubator (AAI), was developed in partnership with the U.S. Department of State‚Äôs Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and supports artists working in six countries annually. AAI utilizes community-driven digital and emerging media art projects to instigate dialogue, build communities, bolster local economies, and further social innovation while addressing a relevant social or environmental challenge.
