IBOC International Artists Program:

NY Branch

This program supports early and mid-career artists with extraordinary ability in increasing international recognition and financial return through our Agency Department and Career Mentoring Division.

The institution provides legal support focused on underrepresented and immigrant demographics to create work opportunities, media exposure, cross-cultural collaboration, and professional relationships on the global scene.

IBOC will act as a Non-Exclusive International Agent for selected artists and expose new names to the competitive international market.

Artists will be featured in the IBOC regular programming and are required to engage in a 3-year project that aims to elevate professional recognition.

IBOC may sponsor selected artists who need working visas in the USA. 

In the program, seniors perform along with new artists. Cross-cultural collaboration is one of the pillars of IBOC’s platform, aiming at community growth, generating collaboration opportunities, and artistic development.

This company is built of diverse people, discovering new forms to create, produce, promote, and support underrepresented voices.
