Pilot Mobility Scheme for Artists and / or Culture Professionals

Pilot Mobility Scheme for Artists and / or Culture Professionals


In May 2018, the European Commission published its Communication on “A New European Agenda for Culture”. The New Agenda proposes more direct action in relation to the mobility of artists and culture professionals, and more specifically to “encourage the mobility of professionals in the cultural and creative sectors and remove obstacles to their mobility.”

It is in this context that Goethe-Institut, Institut français, Nida Art Colony of Vilnius Academy of Arts and Izolyatsia will be launching a pilot mobility scheme for artists and culture professionals in April 2019. The Consortium partners are physically present in most of the countries concerned by this project, i.e. those eligible under the Creative Europe programme, including non-EU countries.

A pilot mobility platform will allow 500 artists and / or culture professionals to take part in this experimental program which will test different durations of mobility for different professional purposes over the course of six months. Between April 2019 and September 2019 candidates can apply for support to work abroad (within the countries mentioned under the Creative Europe programme).

More information on the project and the deadlines will follow on the mobility platform website in April 2019.

Before the test phase of the mobility fund is launched, the partners invite artists and culture professionals to complete a short survey to contribute to the planning. This will help the partners fine-tune the pilot cultural mobility fund to ensure it meets the needs of the sector.

The questions are written in English, but answers can also be provided in English, French, German, Dutch and Spanish. The survey is available here. All answers are anonymised.
