Call for Applications. Culture Moves Europe

Updated: May 10

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.

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:

  • to explore: to conduct creative and artistic research, to investigate, inspire, and work on a specific theme or a new concept;

  • to create: to engage in a creative process seeking to produce a new piece of artistic/cultural work;

  • to learn: to enhance the participants’ competences and skills through non-formal learning or collaboration with a specialist;

  • to connect: to develop a professional network, to strengthen the participants’ professional development, to engage with new audiences.

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:

  • from 7 to 60 days for individuals

  • from 7 to 21 days for groups

Culture Moves Europe’s individual mobility action is opening three rolling calls between October 2022 and January 2025.

First call: from 10 October 2022 to 31 May 2023

Second call: from 2 October 2023 to 31 May 2024

Third call: from Autumn 2024 to Winter 2024

The Call for individual mobility is a rolling call – which means that applications are evaluated, and grants awarded every month.

The mobility project can take place any time in the 12 months after the signature of the grant agreement.
