The second call for residency hosts under the Culture Moves Europe mobility scheme opened on 16th October 2023. This call provides grants to organisations and individual artists registered as legal entities in one of the 40 Creative Europe countries that want to host international artists and cultural professionals for a residency project.

Applicants should send their proposals with details about the duration, objectives, and expected impact of their residency project. They are required to provide a suitable environment, equipment, and a mentor for the invited artists. This ensures that the participants have good conditions to implement their projects.

The residency action targets hosts working in:

  • architecture
  • cultural heritage
  • design and fashion design
  • literature
  • music
  • performing arts
  • visual arts

The application process is divided in two phases:
