Southern Exposure: Performing Arts of Latin America

Southern Exposure is a national initiative that brings exemplary contemporary and traditional performing arts from Latin America to audiences across the United States.


Southern Exposure provides fee support to nonprofit presenters who book artists on a curated roster that changes annually.  Funded engagements include public performances and complementary activities that provide audiences with a greater appreciation for the artists’ work and of the cultures from which the work is derived.
