Mobility for Creativity

Mobility has always been the backbone of international cooperation that enables artists and cultural professionals to build their professional careers as well as explore and learn about different cultural ecosystems. Moreover, mobility is increasingly relevant within the EU culture polices, including the agenda of the post 2020 EU programme for culture. Still, not every country has a well-developed mobility schemes and support system, Slovenia being among them.

The two-day event Mobility for Creativity will host experts from Slovenia and abroad sharing their insight into various aspects of international mobility. Different formats of sessions will include:

  • short presentations of well-established and new opportunities as well as support systems existing at the level of the city, region or country, both within and outside the EU, or for a specific cultural or creative sector;
  • moderated discussions revealing complementary or opposite views on the advantages and challenges of international mobility, including its environmental impact;
  • Who is Who sessions devoted to conference participants who wish to know more about various programs, mechanisms, contact points, services and other opportunities promoting mobility through funding or information support.
