Mobility Funding Guide: United Kingdom

The Cultural Mobility Funding Guide For the international mobility of artists and cultural professionals: The United Kingdom provides an overview of funding available for cultural project to and from the United Kingdom. This updated edition of the guide is published in 2023 by On the Move with Arts Infopoint UK. 

In this latest edition for the United Kingdom (2023), readers can find funding opportunities by country in most artistic and cultural disciplines. 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 this guide there are 22 public funders, 17 private foundations or organisations, 23 residencies, 16 fellowships and scholarships and 5 links to additional resources. 

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 the United Kingdom. 

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.
