Artists Exchange Completed

The Asia Pacific Performance Exchange (APPEX), an international musicians and artists residency program, successfully completed its six-week Summer 2004 session in Bali, Indonesia, from mid-July to late August. The sixteen participants in APPEX 2004, eight from various countries of Asia and eight from the United States, stayed in inf Ubud, and in addition to workshop activities, learned about the rich culture of Bali. Artists visited sacred sites, witnessed ceremonies, and attended numerous local performances. Organized by Professor Judy Mitoma of the UCLA Department of World Arts and Cultures and sponsored by the UCLA Center for Intercultural Performance, APPEX 2004 was made possible by a grant from the U.S. Department of State.
