ZERO1 is calling innovative new media and digital artists with a love of travel and passion for community-driven public art to apply to participate in the American Arts Incubator.  American Arts Incubator is an international arts exchange program developed in partnership with the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA). The program sends artists abroad to collaborate with youth and underserved populations on community-based new media art projects that bolster local economies, influence public policy, and further social innovation.
