This exchange program between Polish and Philadelphia-based choreographers was launched in 2012 by Art Stations Foundation/Stary Browar and Dance/USA Philadelphia. It is meant to enhance the development of young artists pursuing their artistic practice through an international exchange program.


A separate call for proposals will be announced for Polish choreographers interested in a Philadelphia study visit in September 2013.
