Culture Moves Europe provides mobility grants for artists and cultural professionals in all 40 creative Europe countries. It covers the sectors of architecture, cultural heritage, design and fashion design, literature, music, performing arts and visual arts.
This call aims to provide financial support to artists and cultural professionals who, in collaboration with an international partner, wish to carry out a mobility project between Creative Europe countries.
Culture Moves Europe’s second call for individual mobility targets artists and cultural professionals working in the following sectors: music, literature, architecture, cultural heritage, design and fashion design, visual arts and performing arts.
The Individual Mobility Action supports artists and cultural professionals to carry out a project with a partner of their choice in another Creative Europe country. The call is open to individuals and groups of up to 5 people, who wish to implement projects lasting between 7 to 60 days for individuals and 7 to 21 days for the groups. The grant contributes to travel and subsistence costs, and offers additional top-ups based on grantees’ individual situation.
Artists and cultural professionals can apply with a proposal to carry out a project with a partner of their choice in a Creative Europe country which is not their country of residence.
The project should pursue two of the following goals:
The partner can be, for example, a fellow artist, an organisation or a venue in the country of destination. Applicants must provide proof of collaboration in the application process.
It is possible to apply either as an individual or as a group of up to five people.
The projects can last:
The project duration corresponds to the number of days spent in the destination country to implement the project. The travel time is not taken into account for the grant calculation.
Please note that it is only possible to travel to one single destination and that the mobility cannot be interrupted. For group projects, all group members must be at the place of destination for the whole period project implementation.
Important: Culture Moves Europe mobility grant cannot be used to merely present previously created work. Projects that simply propose, for example, an exhibition or performance of a previously created work will not be considered. Culture Moves Europe, and these grants, exist to encourage creation, exchanges, connections, and fruitful learnings across borders.
