Series 1: Asian Pacific Performance Exchange Project (APPEX) 1981-2010

Scope and Content

In 1995, Chair of the UCLA’s Department of World Arts and Cultures Professor Judy Mitoma received major funding from the Ford Foundation for the development of an international exchange program focused on performance. With Ford’s support, Professor Mitoma founded the Center for Intercultural Performance (CIP) to administer these programs, the first of which was the Asia Pacific Performing Arts Exchange (APPEX) program. APPEX was an international residency program with a particular focus on American and Asian artists. The program’s aim was to offer an educationally based international exchange that fostered cross-cultural and interdisciplinary understanding. The Center for Intercultural Performance’s APPEX exchanges took place throughout the years of 1996-2010. In total, APPEX brought together more than 250 traditional and contemporary artists of varying disciplines and backgrounds from the United States and abroad. Artists participated from several countries including Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, and Vietnam whom traveled to UCLA for six week long intensive residency sessions. As well as artists from UCLA were sent to Bali, Indonesia in exchange. In 2010, APPEX became a three-week intensive residency in Bali, Indonesia. A total of 16 artists were selected to participate. The Asian Pacific Performing Arts Exchange resulted in several creative off-shoot projects and performances. In 1998 two members of APPEX’s first residency program in 1996, Victoria Marks and Xu Ying, created the performance piece “Ah Q!” which toured throughout Southern California. Also, “The Art of Rice Traveling Theater” was created during two APPEX workshops (spring 2002 and summer 2003) in Bali and later embarked on an extensive US tour from September to October in 2003. In 1999 and 2000, with the support of The Rockefeller Foundation, a humanities component was added to APPEX. This humanities component implemented the inclusion of writers within the APPEX summer workshop. These writing fellows interacted with the APPEX artists, observed workshop activities, and developed research topics surrounding the theme of Cross-Cultural Collaboration. In 2004, a volume of these writing fellows’ essays titled “Narrative/Performance: Cross-Cultural Encounters at APPEX” was published. APPEX was inspired by Professor Mitoma’s earlier directing of the UCLA Classical Performing Arts Friendship Mission of Japan, which hosted 30 of Japan’s greatest artists. This series is broken into four subseries: Financial, Planning, Photos, and Final Reports.
 

Subseries 1.1: Financial Records 1993-2010

Scope and Content

This subseries consists of all APPEX financial records including ledgers, detailed budgets, financial reports to the University and funders, travel expenses, as well as grant applications and awards. The subseries includes correspondence with the Ford Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Department of Cultural Affairs, the City of Los Angeles, the Asian Cultural Council-New York, the United States State Department and others from 1993-2010. This subseries will be particularly useful for researchers analyzing UCLA’s financial relationship with major funders like the Ford Foundation and Rockefeller Foundation. These correspondences are especially interesting in regards to the US market’s decline after 2008 and the unfortunate budget cuts many university programs have been forced to undergo.

Series 2: World for Sacred Music Festival (WFSM) 1997-2011

Scope and Content

The World Festival of Sacred Music (WFSM) began as a one-time event in 1999 inspired by a letter from His Holiness the Dalai Lama suggesting that people from around the world mark the new millennium with hope and commitment to peace and universal responsibility through music. In response to this call, the Foundation for World Arts in association with EarthWays Foundation, and the UCLA Center for Intercultural Performance produced the 1999 Festival in Los Angeles. As a result of the overwhelmingly positive response from the community, the organizing partners took initiative to host the Festival every three years up until 2011. The World Festival of Sacred Music took place in 1999, 2002, 2005, 2008 and 2011. The Los Angeles Festival (discontinued in 1993) was the precursor to the World Festival of Sacred Music Festival. Supported by Los Angeles City agencies and UCLA, Judith Mitoma and Peter Sellars from UCLA served as co-curators for the LA Festival. WFSM brought together tens of thousands of people of diverse ethnic, cultural, and religious backgrounds. Artists of all types, community and religious leaders, educators and students were in attendance. With a combined total of 226 multidisciplinary events presenting the work of 7,000 artists in 195 diverse venues across Los Angeles and an attendance of over 300,000 people throughout five separate Festivals, WFSM was the largest citywide Festival active in Los Angeles at the time. In 2002 the Urban Prayer Flag Initiative was founded. The Urban Prayer Flag Initiative served as a hands-on visual art component with a special focus on children, teachers, and parents to create a contemporary visual expression of the ideals and aspirations of the festival. A series of flag-making workshops at Inner City Arts and public schools in downtown Los Angeles took place prior to the Festival. 500 Prayer Flags were used to mark festival events and welcome audiences. The Local Heroes project was also implemented in 2002. This project sought to recognize, honor and celebrate the “heroes” among the Los Angeles community. Nominated by festival participants and organizers, a total of 31 Local Heroes from all walks of life were formally introduced and honored throughout the Festival. Both the Urban Prayer Flag Initiative and the Local Heroes project are examples of how the World Festival of Sacred Music and UCLA fostered a meaningful and significant relationship with the city of Los Angeles at large. WFSM also confronted timely environmental issues such as climate change. The World Festival of Sacred Music helped present Water Is Rising, a group of thirty-six artists from the world’s smallest countries -- the island nations of Kiribati, Tokelau, and Tuvalu. After the World Festival of Sacred Music, Water Is Rising toured extensively throughout the United States spreading their environmental message through the medium of dance and performance. The collection spans the years of 1997-2011. The World Festival of Sacred Music Festival series is arranged into five subseries: Financial, Planning, Photos, Final Reports, and Press and Ephemera.

Series 3: Center for Intercultural Performance (CIP) 1995-2011

Scope and Content

Founded in 1995 by Judy Mitoma as part of the World Arts and Cultures Department, the UCLA Center for Intercultural Performance (CIP) brought together internationally recognized artists, scholars, writers, filmmakers, arts professionals and educators from around the world. CIP hosted several international residencies and welcomed over 250 artists both on the UCLA campus and abroad. When the Center for Intercultural Performance was founded it was the only arts department in the United States based on interdisciplinary, international and intercultural research with a performance agenda.
The Center for Intercultural Performance created several successful international residency programs such as the Asian Pacific Performance Exchange (APPEX), Bridge: Choreographic Dialogues, the Indonesian Arts Education residency, UCLA Choreographers/Arts Management (CAM), the UCLA National Dance/Media Project, and the Cudamani Summer Institute in Bali. Not only did CIP organize and produce these residencies but the Center also produced the World Festival of Sacred Music in Los Angeles from 1999-2011.
In 1996, the Pew Charitable Trusts awarded a five-year grant to CIP to establish The UCLA National Dance/Media Project. The goals of this project were to support a broad range of innovative documentation and preservation activities within the field of dance, and to conduct effective dance documentation in film and video. The UCLA National Dance/Media Project consisted of three components: Fellows Program, Leadership Group and Dance/Media Publication titled “Envisioning Dance on Film and Video”. The Fellows Program (1998-2000) supported 24 fellows over a rigorous ten-week residency program.
In 2006 and 2007, a grant from the United States State Department supported the UCLA/Choreographers Arts Management Fellowship Program. The UCLA Choreographers/Arts Management Residency accepted three performing artists from Asia in 2006 and UCLA fellows were sent in 2007. The unique program combined dance artists, educators, and culture workers from Cambodia, Malaysia and Indonesia with UCLA students.
Bridge: Choreographic Dialogues, one of CIP’s residency programs, brought four of Tel Aviv’s leading and most creative contemporary choreographers to work directly with students in the Department of World Arts and Cultures (WAC) during a two-week residency. This cultural exchange eventually culminated in a public performance in 2008. As a two-part reciprocal performing arts exchange program, the first phase sent three UCLA choreographers to Tel Aviv for a two-week residency in 2007.
CIP’s Indonesian Arts Education residency sent American fellows to Indonesia, and hosted Indonesian fellows at UCLA. Developed in 2009, Indonesian Arts Education hosted seven master artists and educators from three diverse arts organizations in Yogyakarta for eleven weeks.
CIP also worked in partnership with The Cudamani Summer Institute in Bali. The institute features intensive study with six master artists, lectures and demonstrations by internationally renowned scholars and artists, observations of rehearsals and performances, and visits to sacred sites and ceremonies. The Center for Intercultural Performance was active from 1995 until 2012.
The CIP series is arranged into four subseries: Financial, Administrative Records, Photos, and Programs.
 

Subseries 3.1: Financial Records 1995-2009

Scope and Content

The Financial subseries consists mostly of grant proposals, awards and reports to funding sources such as the Ford Foundation, the United States Department of State, PEW Trust, the Rockefeller Foundation, and the Freeman Foundation amongst others. This subseries is especially interesting in regards to CIP’s earliest stages of development and the struggle to consistently receive funding for each residency. The subseries spans the years of 1995-2009.

Series 4: World Arts and Cultures (WAC) 1960-2012

Scope and Content

Still active today, the University of California Los Angeles’ department of World Arts and Cultures/Dance is committed to cross cultural education and performance study. First established in 1972, Professor Hawkins and faculty from six disciplines convened to establish the World Arts and Cultures Program (originally named Ethnic Arts). The WAC Program developed an interdisciplinary B.A. with faculty members from Anthropology, Theater, Dance, Music, Folklore, and Art History. In 1993, the World Arts and Cultures Department and Dance Department faculty members at UCLA started to discuss the possibility of merging both departments and developing a unique configuration of creative, educational, and conceptual goals. In 1995, this merger was implemented and the Department of World Arts and Cultures/Dance was born. The department officially changed its name to the Department of World Arts and Cultures/Dance in the Fall of 2011.
WAC/D offers two undergraduate majors: World Arts and Cultures and Dance. The Dance major places a special emphasis on dance composition. The World Arts and Cultures major emphasizes cultural studies through visual and performing arts. The graduate program offers both MA and PhD degrees in Culture and Performance (CAP) as well as a Master of Fine Arts in Dance.
While operating with a substantial amount of independence, the department of World Arts and Cultures/Dances’ two degree streams are unified by WACD's common emphasis and concern for aesthetic production and cross-cultural performance. The department seeks to explore and unpack the dynamics of “tradition,” and “culture-building” in contemporary societies.
The Center for Intercultural Performance (CIP) was a center under the umbrella of the Department of World Arts and Cultures from 1995-2012.
The World Arts and Cultures series is arrnged into two subseries: Administrative Records and Photos and Ephemera.
 

Subseries 4.1: Administrative Records 1960-2012

Scope and Content

The WAC Administrative Records subseries contains financial records, UCLA Dance historical records, WAC departmental historical records, Judy Mitoma misc papers and correspondence. These administrative records also include documents from of the planning and production of the Los Angeles Festival, for which WAC Professors Peter Sellars and Judy Mitoma served as co-curators. Along with the Los Angeles Festival documents, the subseries includes a directory of arts organization within the Los Angeles community. This subseries may be particularly helpful to researchers who not only want to look into CIP and WAC but the city of Los Angeles overall. Focusing specifically on the happenings and history of the UCLA campus, this subseries also includes the meeting minutes of the controversial and heavily debated merger of the Department of World Arts and Cultures and Dance. The Administrative Records subseries spans the years of 1960-2012.
