This publication follows a Mobility Webinar organised by On the Move together with Wales Arts International and Arts Infopoint UK to discuss cultural relations between EU Member States and the United Kingdom, with a focus on the visual arts. It presents the main takeaways of the conversation, which greatly benefited from the input of representatives based in the UK and in EU countries, including On the Move members D6: Culture in Transit, Arts Council England, DutchCulture/TransArtists, and Res Artis, who shaped and brought value to our online discussion. Moreover, this document also presents an analysis of calls for cultural mobility opportunities posted to the On the Move website, as well as takeaways from extensive desk research delving into recent literature on the topic of UK-EU relations.
It ends by outlining recommendations to cultural operators and decision-makers for providing contextual support. These are informed by years of dialogue with local stakeholders and the daily work of the Mobility Information Points (MIPs), who have been redoubling their efforts to help UKand EU-based arts professionals deal with post-Brexit issues, from visas to customs rules. These recommendations aim to lay the groundwork for fruitful cultural relations in the future.
