The City of San Jose Office of Cultural Affairs will award a limited number of Arts and Cultural Exchange Grants for San Jose arts organizations, artists, and/or arts professionals to travel internationally for art-related activities and to support international artists to travel to San Jose. Request must come from a San Jose nonprofit organization, artist or arts professional. Grant awards will range from $2,500 to $5,000 and maybe used for a variety of arts-related activities including but not limited to performances, exhibitions, lectures, and/or research.

Eligibility is not limited to any particular country, but priority will be given to exchanges that advance the relationship between the City of San Jose and cities with significant ties to San Jose, including its Sister Cities, cities connected to San Jose via direct international flights, and cities culturally reflected in the population of San Jose.
