Art Moves Africa - Online cultural mobility funding guide for Africa

Art Moves AfricaKorea Arts Management Service and On the Move have published the Guide to funding opportunities for the international mobility of artists and culture professionals – Africa.

The guide provides an overview of the funding bodies and programmes that support the international mobility of artists and cultural operators from Africa and travelling to Africa. It also aims to provide input for funders and policy makers on how to fill the existing gaps in funding for international cultural exchange. 87 funding organisations and 133 funding schemes related to Africa are listed together with 38 funding bodies and 48 funding schemes with an international outreach as well as key resources on mobility funding for artists and cultural organisations.  The list includes only regular funding opportunities, whose terms and application procedures are accessible online, and that cover travel costs (partially or completely).

This guide - whose information was mostly compiled between August-December 2015 - is an attempt to gather all the resources in one document. It draws on extensive online research as well as on previously completed studies: namely, AMA’s studies on mobility and touring in East Africa (2011, 2012) and Central Africa (2015), and the Cultural Mobility Funding Guide – Focus on the 13 Arab Countries (by the Arab Education Forum, in collaboration with OTM and thanks to the support of Korea Arts Management Service).
