Mobility Funding Guide to the South Mediterranean Region

The main objective of the Cultural Mobility Funding Guide to the South Mediterranean Region, published in 2023 by the On the Move (OTM), is to provide an overview of the funding bodies and programmes that support the international mobility of artists and culture professionals travelling from/to 8 South Mediterranean countries and territories, namely Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Malta, Morocco, Tunisia, the South Italian islands (Sicily, Pantelleria, Egadi Islands, Pelagie Islands), and the Spanish territories of Ceuta and Melilla.

The Cultural Mobility Funding Guide should also provide inspiration for those responsible for public policies and mobility funds at local, regional, national and European level, as well as private donors and mobility stakeholders at large. Reinforcing awareness of the remaining obstacles that stand in the way of equal access to international opportunities, it can suggest areas that should be financed more fairly and efficiently in order to ensure more sustainable support for cross-border cultural collaboration.

For further information and free download, see OTM website.

OTM regularly publishes Cultural Mobility Funding Guides available for download, free of charge, from its website and distributed broadly at European and international levels to facilitate the access to quality information in relation to funding schemes and travel grants partially or entirely dedicated to the support of cross-border initiatives. Guides aim to present an accurate and reliable information to artists and cultural professionals in order to support their career advancement, artistic growth and collaborative perspectives.

Produced in collaboration with local partners, among them Motovila, these mobility funding guides cover more than 60 countries and territories – from Brazil to Taiwan.

In September 2022, Mobility Funding Guide dedicated to the Balkan region has been released, including Albania, Bulgaria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Montenegro, Romania, North Macedonia, Slovenia and Serbia.
