Mission and aims
On the Move is a cultural mobility information network with 50+ organisations members and individuals in over 24 countries across Europe and worldwide. Our main mission is to encourage and facilitate cross-border mobility and cooperation, contributing to a vibrant, shared European and international cultural space.

On the Move’s overarching goal is to become a platform of knowledge, both on-site and virtual, that promotes a concept of mobility that is progressive, responsible and sustainable – for the benefit of individual artists and cultural professionals as well as the culture and arts sector in Europe and internationally.
