Mobility Information Points

Mobility Information Points (MIP) are information centres and/or websites in several European countries, and one in the USA, who aim to tackle administrative challenges that artists and cultural professionals can face when working across borders. Relevant issues can be around visas, social security, taxation, customs etc. 

MIP are usually key players at national and European levels who advocate – together with other networks and organisations – for better conditions for artists and cultural professionals working internationally.
