CULTURAL DIPLOMACY

The use of art, artists and people whose profession is to communicate, to share, to engage, to challenge and, at the same time, to teach and to entertain. Company E was founded, and maintains as its central focus, international engagement, most often in parts of the world Americans rarely see.

Working in close cooperation with the US Diplomatic Missions around the globe, Company E's artists bring their knowlege, art and talent to often challenging environments, showcasing another side of America in parts of the world where the need is greatest.

From Havana, Cuba in April of 2015, where Company E was one of the first Cultural programs created in the new era of diplomatic cooperation between the US and Havana to extended programs in Russia in the midst of a deepening freeze between Washington and Moscow, the Company brings its art, and its talent, to the Diplomatic fore.

In 2015-2016 alone Company E's programs with the Department of State are in Russia, Turkmenistan, Uruguay, Algeria, the West Bank of the Palestinian Territories, Pakistan, Kazakhstan and the United Kingdom.
