On the Move (OTM)

Since April 2014, FACE has been a member of On the Move, a European cultural network aiming to encourage and facilitate cross-border mobility and cooperation for professionals in the arts and culture sector. Born as a website, it has evolved into a dynamic network which now includes 50+ member organisations and individuals in Europe and internationally. Discover OTM's activities by visiting the website (and registering for the monthly multilingual newsletter!) or by watching this short video.

Working group on internationalisation programmes

FACE and On the Move have formed a working group of French and Belgium colleagues that are very active in internationalisation programmes – schemes that support visual/performing artists and producers to grow and work internationally.

The objectives are to:

  • Encourage the creation of a peer learning group: a community of resources, warmth and mutual support.
  • Share concrete experiences through the analysis of support practices.
  • Mobilise a community of peers around challenges/limits or tensions (better defining a problem, identifying solutions, shifting one's perspective, regaining confidence, identifying resources to be mobilised or skills to be acquired) with a view to further developing our mentoring practices.
  • Discuss the diverse types of support for internationalisation (exporting and dissemination but also collaboration, cooperation, residencies, exchange, skills development, networking, etc.) – also questioning their potential and their respective limits in the context of international support.
  • Initiate cooperation and networking between trainers / mentors / facilitators / support structures.

The group meets regularly both online and in person, and gathers representatives from Spectacle Vivant en Bretagne, Flanders Arts Institute, Mains d'Oeuvres, M Topia, IN SITU network, Art Moves Africa, etc.
