Support for international arts activity | new IFACCA report
Supporting the international activities of artists and arts organisations is a key function for many national arts funding agencies. In order to investigate this area of arts policy and identify key issues that affect the programs and priorities of such agencies, the International Federation of Arts Councils and Culture Agencies (IFACCA) conducted a worldwide survey in English, French and Spanish, the results of which have been analysed and supplemented by other research and presented in this report.
D’Art Report No. 40 describes the agencies involved in supporting international arts activities, the scope of and budgets for this support, and the range of policy objectives, priorities and evaluation processes evident in the research. The report also details a wide range of issues identified by arts funding agencies.
This report was researched and written by independent cultural research consultant, Judith Staines. Lisa Cahill, IFACCA’s former Research and Project Manager, collected and compiled the main survey responses and made a preliminary analysis.
A range of resources related to the topic can be found at IFACCA’s topic page http://www.ifacca.org/topic/international-arts-activity/ and information on artist mobility is available at http://www.ifacca.org/topic/artists-international-mobility-programs/ .
