The European Commission has signed an agreement with Goethe-Institut to implement a new €21 million mobility scheme for artists and cultural professionals: Culture Moves Europe.

The new Culture Moves Europe will become a permanent action under the Creative Europe programme and follows the successful I-Portunus pilot project that took place between 2018 and 2022. The scheme builds on the recommendations stemming from this pilot phase.

It will offer grants to

-artists
-cultural operators
-host organisations

from all the sectors covered by the CULTURE strand and from the countries participating in the Creative Europe programme. Emerging artists will receive special attention.

Culture Moves Europe has a budget of €21 million over the next three years. This will allow around 7,000 artists, creators and cultural professionals to

-go abroad for professional development or international collaborations
-co-produce
-co-create
-present their works to new audiences

The first calls are expected in autumn 2022.
