Culture of Mobility
Since 2022, Culture of Mobility program for creators and artists from Lower Silesia has been operating under the banner of the Wroclaw Institute of Culture! By participating in the support program, you can get funding for your dream trip abroad. A trip to a research conference, a trip to a residency, or maybe a study visit to a studio on the other side of the world? Where will you go and for what purpose it depends on you – from us you will get a financial support.
Applications to this year’s Culture of Mobility program will last three weeks: from February 7 to February 26. The results will be announced on March 6, and your departures should take place between Match 10 and December 10, 2023 (you can also show the costs backwards – more info in the regulations ).
Conducted since 2017, the Culture of Mobility program is addressed in particular to artists, curators, managers, activists, animators and cultural researchers from Wrocław and Lower Silesia who plan to implement their projects abroad individually or in groups during this year. Submitted projects do not have to consist only a residential or study visit. Persons who plan to take part in art reviews, festivals and conferences organised outside Poland or who intend to start foreign project work (e.g. in the form of concerts, performances, exhibitions or workshops) are also invited. From 2021, applications for networking trips aimed at acquiring partners are also accepted.
The winners will receive financial support of up to PLN 3000 gross to cover travel and/or accommodation costs. All interested parties can apply – regardless of education or experience.
