Evaluation of the International Opportunities Fund (Wales) - a study commissioned by Wales Arts International to On the Move
Wales Arts International has commissioned an evaluation of the International Opportunities Fund (IOF) and its impact on the mobility of artists and cultural professionals based in Wales. The research was carried out by On the Move through interviews with both recipients of the IOF awards and their international partners.
The report was prepared by Marie Le Sourd, Elena Di Federico (both members of staff of On The Move) and Dr Sung-Won Yoon. The report includes useful references and weblinks of organisations in the fields of performing arts, publishing, cultural heritage, visual arts and audiovisual as well as a section on cultural mobility.
This regional mobility and freedom of movement policy agenda aims to develop closer links between a range of stakeholders including government agencies, foundations, voluntary and community sector in delivering specific policies and positions in areas affecting mobility with a focus on arts, culture and social entrepreneurship.

Throughout 2013, On the Move has been co-producing or updating guides and toolkits to help artists and cultural professionals to better identify funding and/or information resources to support their mobility. (Re)-discover them!
While preparing On the Move's participation in a public panel related to touring world musicians and visa issues - as part of WOMEX 13 (Cardiff, Wales, United Kingdom) -, we realised that it would be relevant to have a specific page to gather different information portals/organisations which can be useful in the time of visa applications or to report problems and obstacles. Check this list and contact us to share other relevant information!
One of the key objectives of this repertory is to help Latin American - and international - artists and cultural professionals to identify information sources and to find potential ways to support their cultural mobility related projects.
A great contribution to the subject of art and mobility with numerous articles and references to understand the multiple aspects of artists' mobility. More than 15 articles and an online exhibition not to be missed!
