To go further: Other Charters and advocacy actions to support a fair cultural mobility:

“The Roberto Cimetta Fund developed something new, an ethical charter. The aim of this ethical charter was to define our values and make sure that our partners and grantees share the same values.When an artist receives a grant he or she is asked to agree with the charter. Cultural organisations should communicate their ethical values in a changing and globalised society. It's important when we establish relations with people elsewhere, particularly as conflicts are raging in many parts of the world. ". (Angie Cotte, Secretary General of the Roberto Cimetta Fund)
