On the Move's Members, Supporters and Partners (Aug. 2014- June 2015)

Lastly up-dated on 20 June 2015

As shared through its newsletters from August 2014, because of the rejection of the European Commission to fund On the Move (OTM) for the three years to come, OTM had to fully re-think its strategy of development. On the Move's secretariat is still, to this date, functioning on a voluntary basis.

However this challenging period is bringing us some new positive developments in terms of memberships, new partnerships and overall diversification of funding sources for OTM.

Should you wish to support us through a financial contribution / donation or the proposal of a partnership like the ones described under the points 3 and 4, please contact us at mobility(at)on-the-move.org

1) Memberships

Since it structured itself as a network after 2010, On the Move has always been functioning on the basis of voluntary membership fees. However from September 2014 and in order to help for the transitional phase of development of On the Move, its member-organisations (and individuals) contributed, when possible, to the network through various ways (voluntary fees or financial contributions to projects at the end of 2014).

The following OTM members deserve special thanks: Arts and Theatre Institute-Czech Republic, BAAPE-France, DutchCulture/TransArtists, IETM, IGBK, ITI-Germany,  Kunstenloket, Theatre Union of the Russian Federation, Wales Arts International, Zbigniew Raszewski Theatre Institute-Poland and Mary-Ann DeVlieg.

We'd like to make as well a special mention to Theatre Without Borders (for the preparation of the Conference and Launch of the US Cultural Mobility Funding Guide) and the SGAE Foundation for the free monthly translation of the OTM newsletter in Spanish.

OTM members decided - during the OTM General Assembly in Paris on 19 May 2015 - a new set of membership fees. Read more about the OTM membership guidelines here.

2) Institutions' / Foundations' support in 2014 and 2015

In 2014, On the Move received the support of the Ministry of Culture and Communication-France, the Gulbenkian Foundation, the Mission of the People's Republic of China to the EU, the Asia-Europe Foundation and the Agence luxembourgeoise d'action culturelle.
