Report on Building a Strong Framework for Artists' Mobility: Five Key
Principles (2012)

This report is the outcome of the work done by the Working Group on
Mobility support Programmes, a group of twenty-five experts representing
an equal number of EU Member States that expressed an interest in
participating. The Working Group was launched in early 2011 under the
Council Work Plan for Culture 2011-2014 which implements the European
Agenda for Culture.

The working group's mandate was to screen and assess mobility support
programmes and schemes in order to identify the barriers and problems
faced in particular by small-scale culture operators and young artists and
cultural professionals, and to look at good practice examples illustrating
how these difficulties were overcome.

The report considers in detail the benefits of artists’ mobility for all
stakeholders involved, focusing on the results of mobility. Five "Key
Principles" are proposed, in order to build a strong and sustainable
framework for artists’ mobility in Europe and beyond.

Those five "key principles" are:

Key Principle 1: Acknowledge and build on the values and benefits of
artists' mobility
Key Principle 2: Enhance complementarity between EU Member States'
policies and EU action in the supports for artists' mobility
Key Principle 3: Adapt mobility support schemes to changing needs and
Key principle 4: Artists' mobility support is a shared responsibility
Key principle 5: A call for efficiency and effectiveness
The executive summary presents the key principles in further details.

In the report, further information about artists' mobility, framework and
a list of resources in annex, which presents examples of programmes &
schemes supporting artists' mobility in EU MS, other relevant resources
provided by MS, studies & reports.
