The call provides financial support to organisations and individual artists that want to host artists and cultural professionals for a residency project.

The third call for residency hosts of the Culture Moves Europe mobility scheme is open for applications from 15 March to 15 May 2024. The call provides grants to organisations and individual artists from one of the 40 Creative Europe countries registered as legal entities, that want to host international artists and cultural professionals for a residency project.

Applicants should send their proposals with details about the duration, objectives, and expected impact of their residency project. They are required to provide a suitable environment, equipment, and a mentor for the invited artists. This ensures that the participants have good conditions to implement their projects.

The residency action targets hosts working in

  • architecture
  • cultural heritage
  • design and fashion design
  • literature
  • music
  • performing arts
  • visual arts

The application process is divided in two phases:

  1. selection of hosts
  2. confirmation of the invited artists, creators and cultural professionals selected by hosts

Eligibility criteria

To be able to apply, you must

  • be a representative of an organisation or a person registered as a legal entity
  • organise activities connected to at least one of the sectors listed above
  • regularly organise artistic and cultural activities or/and have the capacity (i.e facility, services, staff and mentoring) to implement an artistic and cultural residency project
  • invite at least 1 and a maximum of 5 artists or cultural professionals, to take part in the residency project, who legally reside in at least one other Creative Europe country

The project must last a minimum of 22 days and a maximum of  180 days.

Hosted individuals should all be part of the residency project at the same time and for the same duration.

The residency project and stay of the individuals must be uninterrupted.

For the full list of eligibility criteria, see the call documentation, available on the call page, linked below.

Application process

The call is open for application from 15 March 2024 to 15 May 2024, 23.59:59 CET (Central European Time).

To apply, first, you need to create an account on the Goethe-Application Portal. 

If your residency project is selected, you will be notified early July 2024, through the Goethe-Application Portal, and be invited to proceed with the selection of artists participating in your project.

Selected hosts will have until 31 May 2025 to complete their project.

Extra inclusivity and sustainability support

Accessibility and inclusivity are at the heart of Culture Moves Europe.

Special financial support is offered to participants living with disabilities and hosts having capacities to invite artists with disability are encouraged to do so.

There is also special support for those travelling to and from overseas countries and territories as well as the outermost regions of the EU.

Culture Moves Europe is equally committed to operating in a sustainable and environmentally responsible way and the applicants are invited to include those aspects in their residency projects. Participating artists and cultural professionals are encouraged to use more sustainable means of transportation. Those who select not to travel by plane will receive an additional amount to compensate higher costs of green travel.
