Mobility Funding Guide to the United Kingdom

Cultural mobility funding guide for the international mobility of artists and cultural professionals - United Kingdom.

This funding guide includes two kinds of mobility opportunities for artists and culture professionals: outgoing and incoming. The outgoing opportunities are for people based in the United Kingdom (the four nations of England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales as well as British Crown Dependencies and UK Overseas Territories) wishing to travel outside the country. The incoming opportunities are for people from other countries who want to travel to the United Kingdom.

The guide lists local, national, and international resources, both public and private. We have only included opportunities that are regularly occurring, accessible online, invite applications through open calls, and that cover at least a portion of international travel costs.

This guide was produced by in partnership with Arts Infopoint UK, a partnership of members from each of the UK’s Arts Councils: Arts Council England, Arts Council of Northern Ireland, Creative Scotland, and led by Arts Council of Wales | Wales Arts International.

Thanks to Judith Staines and Katelijn Verstraete for researching and updating the 2023 edition of this guide.
