The project has three main objectives:
1. To empower recent MIPs to strengthen their capacity to better serve the sector in all its diversity and to help develop potential new MIPs in other EU countries, through a MIP handbook that would contribute to strengthening coherent and coordinated actions among existing and future MIPs. This MIP handbook (or knowledge transfer tool) will be conceptualised through a training in Ljubljana on 11-13 September 2023.
2. To reinforce the visibility of MIPs and their related action through a dedicated landing page and microsite that provides easily accessible information and tailor-made support to artists and culture professionals, while redirecting them to the relevant MIP and/or key resources. The website will be active and online from 20 November 2023.
3. To advocate for fairer access to rights and information for mobile artists and culture professionals, through a first consolidated data report, compiled through a new data collection tool, that would inform further policies at EU and national levels.
The project is expected to culminate in a MIP workshop in Brussels on 20 November 2023, coupled with a presentation of the project results on 21 November 2023 to EU and national official representatives, European cultural networks and advocacy platforms.
The project’s timeframe is from June till December 2023.
