OneBeat Virtual

OneBeat is an international music exchange bringing together musicians aged 19-35 from around the world to work with American peers and participate in a program that focuses on musical collaboration and social engagement through innovative people-to-people diplomacy.

Due to the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic, 2021 exchange activities will be conducted online. OneBeat Virtual is comprised of two independent virtual fellowships (July 12-September 6, 2021 and September 20-November 17, 2021).

Each OneBeat Virtual fellowship involves 28 working days over 8-weeks to allow for asynchronous offline interaction and development time. Please see the FAQ’s for more details. Applicants will be considered for both fellowship dates, but assigned to only one virtual residency once selected. Applicants may list a date preference, but preferences cannot be guaranteed.

OneBeat Virtual is a paid exchange. Participating artists will also receive a modest honorarium, per diem for online sessions, and a small subsidy for purchasing necessary audio equipment and enhanced internet connectivity.
