Music Mobility Funding Guide – Focus on Europe

On the Move, in partnership with Music Export Poland, have published the Music Mobility Funding Guide – with a focus on Europe – to provide an overview of the funding bodies and programmes that support the international mobility of music artists (authors, composers, musicians, bands, orchestras) and other music professionals travelling from and/or to European countries.

The guide covers 46 countries located on the European continent, which are members of the Council of Europe: Albania, Andorra, Armenia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Kosovo, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Moldova, Monaco, Montenegro, Netherlands, North Macedonia, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, San Marino, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Ukraine, and the United Kingdom.

The publishers commissioned music industry and mobility experts Jess Partridge and Marie Fol to map grants and support schemes in which music is either the main focus or is specifically listed as an eligible discipline. It covers all types of musical expression, from ancient to more contemporary genres – from classical, jazz and pop to traditional and early forms of music.

The aim of the guide is to transparently consolidate existing information that can help individuals and organisations to find the best ways to engage with international colleagues and finance their cross-border travel. This guide lists local, national, and international resources, both public and private. The authors 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.
