Individual Mobility

Culture Moves Europe offers mobility grants to individual artists and cultural professionals willing to implement a project abroad and spread the culture vibes around Europe and beyond! It provides financial support to partially fund the cost of travel (transport, accommodation, etc.) of an artist or a cultural professional residing in a Creative Europe country and going to another Creative Europe country to implement a project with an international partner (organisation or individual).

The Individual Mobility Action covers the sectors included in the CULTURE strand of Creative Europe:
    •    architecture,
    •    cultural heritage,
    •    design and fashion design,
    •    literary translation,
    •    music,
    •    performing arts and
    •    visual arts.

The mobility scheme allows artists and cultural professionals to internationalise their activities and horizons by pursuing one of the following objectives:

  • To explore: To explore Europe’s rich cultural heritage to inform, direct or inspire their own creativity;
  • To create: To co-create or co-develop art with artists and cultural professionals from other countries;
  • To learn: To participate in non-formal learning;
  • To connect: To develop or deepen international professional relationships. 

Please note: the mobility scheme cannot be used purely to fund travel for artists to present their work in a professional setting (vernissage, exhibition, concert, performance). 

Culture Moves Europe promotes gender balance and inclusion of artists from minorities and underrepresented groups. The scheme offers specific support to artists and cultural professionals living with a disability. The scheme should also be geographically balanced: accessible to those living in rural and remote areas, including overseas territories of the participating countries or countries where artists have less experience of international cooperation. It should also reach out to those who are marginalised or have family responsibilities. Special attention will also be given to emerging artists and cultural professionals.
