On the Move's Charter for funders of mobility

The online toolkit to improve the way you support cultural mobility!

If you are a public institution or body which funds cultural activities, including international activities, and/or specifically mobility projects; or if you are a private foundation or organisation which funds the mobility of artists and cultural operators, either in a certain region, for specific disciplines or according to other criteria... so, if you fund cultural mobility, the respect of the following criteria ensures that you fund mobility practices that are respectful of social and environmental standards.
