Research for CULT Committee - Mobility of Artists and Culture Professionals: Towards a European Policy Framework

A suitcase lies open on the ground. Rising out of it is the Earth itself - a symbol of globetrotting travel.

Mobility is a social and economic condition of artists and culture professionals and, at the same time, a vector of social and economic development. However, mobility in the cultural and creative sectors is faced with a number of issues that need to be addressed at EU and national levels. The paper provides recommendations for a EU-wide mobility framework which entails both a dedicated mobility scheme and an improved regulatory environment that would facilitate mobility in Europe.
