TamizdatAVAIL (‘Artist Visa Assistance and Information Line’) provides pro bono assistance to the international performing arts community with U.S. visa problems. The project grew in response to the performing arts community’s concern that an increasingly complex and unpredictable U.S. visa process is having a significant negative impact on the presentation of foreign performing artists to U.S. audiences. 

TamizdatAVAIL is sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts and run in cooperation with New York Law SchoolThe League of American OrchestrasCanadian Federation of MusiciansNew York Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts, and On the Move.
