What are MIPs – Mobility Information Points?

Mobility Information Points (MIP) are information centres who aim to tackle the administrative challenges artists and cultural professionals can face when working across borders.

The group cooperates to share resources in the European and international context, covering issues such as visas, social security, taxation, and customs rules.

MIPs are members of the On the Move, the cultural mobility network that advocates for fairer and more responsible mobility in the arts and cultural sector.
