Describe the main features of the policy/measure: 

The Canada Council's Arts Abroad Program celebrates the creativity, innovation and excellence of Canadian artists by helping to bring Canadian works to the world. This program supports artists, arts professionals, groups and organizations to enhance international exposure, undertake artistic exploration or exchanges with international colleagues, and nurture new and existing art markets in a global context. This program includes six components:

a. Travel: Project grants for artists, arts professionals, groups and organizations to travel abroad to network, collaborate and build the international profile of Canadian arts practice
b. Representation and Promotion: Project grants to support Canadian organizations that represent Canadian artists to travel to develop international markets and promote work abroad
c. Translation: Project grants for Canadian or foreign organizations to translate Canadian literary and dramatic works for publication or presentation abroad
d. Circulation and Touring: Project grants for Canadian artists, groups and organizations to circulate exhibitions and tour internationally
e. Residencies: Project grants for artists, arts professionals, artistic groups and arts organizations to participate in residencies abroad
f. Co-productions: Project grants for Canadian artistic groups and arts organizations to be partners in international co-productions of new work or exhibitions

The Canada Council's Arts Across Canada Program fosters meaningful relationships and exchanges between artists and the Canadian public. Artists, arts professionals, groups and arts organizations can apply to present and share artistic work with diverse communities across the country, engage more deeply with the public and develop a stronger national profile. Festivals and other presenters can apply to highlight the work of Canadian and international artists, and contribute to the growing dialogue and exchange on the arts in Canada. This program includes a component for Foreign Artist Tours, which provides project grants for Canadian arts organizations to host tours of foreign artists in Canada.
