Culture Moves Europe: new cultural mobility opportunities for artists
October 3, 2023
The EU’s largest cultural mobility scheme, called ‘Culture Moves Europe‘, opens a new call for individual mobility. It is aimed at artists and cultural professionals who are at least 18 years old, legally resident in one of the 40 countries of the Creative Europe programme and active in the following sectors: performing arts, visual arts, music, cultural heritage, architecture, design and fashion design, and literature. Application is open from today until 31 May 2024.
The scheme offers mobility grants contributing to the travel and subsistence costs that may be completed with additional financial support to promote more diverse participation of people who are facing obstacles to international mobility. Increased financial support is offered to those who travel green, are parents of young children or require a visa. Artists with disabilities are particularly encouraged to apply, as Culture Moves Europe offers them special support to cover additional costs that may arise from disability to enable them to participate in projects across borders.
Since its launch a year ago, Culture Moves Europe has already supported more than 1,800 grantees who choose to collaborate with their international partners in another Creative Europe country ranging from Norway to Tunisia and from Portugal to Armenia, to implement their cultural projects. Applicants who were not selected in the first round of calls are welcome to apply again.
