European pilot cultural mobility fund
In April 2019 a new European pilot cultural mobility fund will be launched, supported by the European Commission through the Creative Europe programme. Between April and September 2019 eligible artists and cultural professionals will be able to apply for financial support covering a professional purpose abroad within the Creative Europe programme countries*.
A consortium of European partners has been contracted by the European Commission to lead the process and to manage the pilot phase of the cultural mobility fund. 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 overall objective of this pilot mobility fund, supported by the European Commission, is to test a cross-national fund that answers the needs of mobile artists and cultural professionals, particularly in terms of duration, objectives and expected impacts on their careers and professional development.
