Our guide to cross-border mobility for artists and cultural workers from and travelling to Africa.
This cultural mobility funding guide lists national, local and international resources from both public and private funders. Two kinds of opportunity are included: outgoing and incoming. The outgoing opportunities are for nationals and residents of African countries wishing to travel outside their country. The incoming opportunities are for nationals from other continents who want to travel to African countries.
The guide only lists regular opportunities that are accessible online (for instance for touring, residencies, collaborations, training, etc.). Funds where information is only available offline, schemes which do not use open calls, and one-off or short-term funding programmes are not included.
Since 2011, On the Move has published 60 funding guides focusing on specific countries or world regions. They aim to make information on mobility funding clear and accessible, letting artists and cultural operators explore the field of opportunities. By gathering a large body of information in one place, they also help funders and policymakers to see how support is structured and to notice any shortfalls.
Our guides are always produced with partners, organisations and/or researchers who have a close relationship to the region, and we try to make them as complete as possible. If you see something is missing and it meets our editorial policy, then you can email firstname.lastname@example.org
