Mobility Funding Guide: Spain
The Guide to Funding Opportunities for the International Mobility of Artists and Culture Professionals Spain provides an overview of funding available for cultural project to and from Spain. This guide was updated thanks to the support of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports of Spain, with the research support of Jesica Gallego Gómez and the coordination of On the Move.
In this latest edition for Spain (2023), readers can find funding opportunities by country in most artistic and cultural disciplines. The guide lists national resources when available, as well as regional and international sources of funding, be they public or private. The main objective of this Cultural Mobility Funding Guide is to provide an overview of the funding bodies and programmes that support the international mobility of artists and culture professionals.
In the guide there are 3 government funders, 12 regional funders, 15 private foundations or organisations, 1 foreign cultural institution, 2 organisations with regional coverage, 4 awards and 6 residencies.
To make sure that the publication uses reliable sources, only regular opportunities accessible online are listed. This means that there are a number of resources that are not listed: funds for which information is only available offline, funds that are not based on open calls, and ad hoc or short-term funding.
The guide is an attempt to gather all the resources in one document and is by no means complete. Rather, it is a starting point for research into funding for mobility in the context of Spain.
Since 2012, the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) and On the Move (OTM) have jointly presented the Mobility Funding Guides for International Cultural Exchange for the 51 countries of the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM). You can learn about how to read the mobility funding guides here.
Readers interested in mobility from or to Ceuta and Melilla should read the mobility funding guide for the South Mediterranean Region.
