The Martin E. Segal Theatre Center, On the Move & Theatre Without Borders present
CULTURAL MOBILITY: Symposium + International Funding Guide for The Performing Arts
Wednesday, January 7, 2015 | 9:30am - 5:30pm At The Graduate Center, City University of New York Proshansky Auditorium
On January 7th, 2015, the Martin E. Segal Theatre Center, On the Move, & Theatre Without Borders will host a Cultural Mobility Symposium & Conference to announce the official launch of the first-ever Cultural Mobility Funding Guide for the USA: Theatre, Performing Arts and Dance.
The launch will initiate a day-long symposium featuring morning presentations from cultural mobility experts, funders, cultural exchange organizations, and practitioners. Professionals representing institutions from around the world will join afternoon working sessions to address a diverse selection of topics including artists & human rights, socially engaged performance, general funding practices, international collaboration, and practical challenges. The day will offer rare networking opportunities for international practitioners and service organizations.
This event grows out of an extraordinary inter-continental collaboration between theMartin E. Segal Theatre Center (thesegalcenter.org), the European cultural mobility information network On the Move (on-the-move.org) and the U.S.-based grass-roots international network Theatre Without Borders (theatrewithoutborders.com).
The new Cultural Mobility Funding Guide for the USA: Theatre, Performing Arts and Dance will provide a free and user-friendly online guide to funding for international exchange for artists traveling to and from the USA. This guide builds upon On the Move's existing co-produced guides for artists and cultural professionals in Europe, Asia, and Arab countries (on-the-move.org/funding). The main objective of theses guides is to make available, in a transparent way, the existing information on funding for the international mobility of artists and cultural operators and to give input to funders and policy makers on how to fill in the existing gaps in funding for international cultural exchange.
The launch, symposium and conference will be free and open to the public. For reservations and further information contact: Camille Gaume, firstname.lastname@example.org
