The International Visiting Artist Program (IVAP) brings international artists to the University of Wisconsin–Madison campus for short-term residences. Launched in the fall of 2019, the program is a partnership between the Division of the Arts and the International Division. The program is leveraged to bring visiting artists who might not otherwise have the chance to share their work in the United States, especially artists from less developed countries, those of marginalized identities, or those who provide a unique perspective to their field.
Through the International Visiting Artist Program, visiting artists bring their expertise into existing campus arts programs, expand students’ horizons, and facilitate opportunities for future collaborations and careers abroad. While in residence, artists present workshops and public events—including guest speaking, teaching, or presenting work both as part of regular courses and departmental colloquia—and participate in community outreach as part of co-curricular events for campus presenters, residential learning communities, or student organizations.
The International Visiting Artist Program is funded by the International Division.

“As an artist and dance pedagogue, the entire program has been truly inspiring, and I’m very grateful for the experience. I believe exchanges like this do broaden the field of research, while creating more connections.”Sandra Vincent, Fall 209 International Visiting Artist
