This publication follows a Mobility Webinar organised by On the Move in April 2022 as part of a series of online discussions investigating international artistic and cultural mobility issues. For this webinar, On the Move collaborated with Archipel.eu partners in order to discuss cultural mobility in European Outermost Regions and Overseas Countries and Territories. Addressing the specificities of these European contexts (from operating in isolation to having a low sense of belonging to Europe, from dealing with the effects of the pandemic to reshaping postcolonial relations, etc.), arts professionals were invited to share experiences and trends, identify burning issues and related needs, and imagine action for fairer cross-border mobility flows.
This report presents the main takeaways of the conversation as we greatly benefited from the input of representatives based in these European territories, who shaped and brought value to the online conversation. This publication also outlines recommendations to cultural operators and decision-makers for providing contextual support – including support for professional development and access to professional information and tools.
