Supporting international mobility
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. The scheme follows the successful i-Portunus pilot project that took place between 2018 and 2022.
With a budget of €21 million, Culture Moves Europe offers mobility grants to around 7,000 artists, cultural professionals and host organisations from 2022 to 2025. Funded by the creative Europe programme of the European Union, Culture Moves Europe is implemented by the Goethe-Institut.
Two types of grants
The scheme consists of two action lines: individual mobility (for individuals and groups of up to five persons) and residencies.
1. Individual mobility action
The individual mobility action offers financial support to individuals who travel between 7 and 60 days or groups of up to 5 persons who travel between 7 and 21 days.
Rolling calls for all sectors that Culture Moves Europe covers are open every year between autumn and spring.
2. Residency action
The residency action is aimed at organisations and established individual artists who regularly organise residencies and are interested in hosting artists and cultural professionals.
