Connecting small and mid-sized Midwestern communities to world cultures through week-long residencies with global performers.
A program of Arts Midwest, the 2011–2013 Arts Midwest World Fest cycle is generously supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, 3M Foundation, and MetLife Foundation. Additional support is provided by the Ministry of Culture of the People’s Republic of China for Tarim, and the Consulate General of Israel to the Midwest for Yamma Ensemble.
