Culture Moves Europe is the new EU mobility scheme that offers grants to artists, cultural professionals and host organisations in all Creative Europe countries who work in the sectors of architecture, cultural heritage, design and fashion design, literary translation, music, performing arts, and visual arts.
Culture Moves Europe is composed of two action lines:
- Individual mobility for artists and cultural professionals;
- Residencies for host organisations.
This call is open to residency hosts that are legal entities (e.g. non-for-profit, private, public bodies, foundations, etc.) in one of the Creative Europe countries and that are active in the sectors of architecture, cultural heritage, design, and fashion design, literature, music, performing arts and visual arts.
The residency grant contributes to the costs connected to hosting international artists and cultural professionals and their mobility. Accommodation is provided by the residency host. The grant includes travel allowance and daily allowance for the participating artists and cultural professionals. It is part of the residency grant that hosts will receive. The travel allowance depends on the participants’ travel distance and means of transportation.
