A new Practics Infotools
section has been launched onto OTM´s website.
The Practics Infotools section is a gateway to country specific and European wide information tools, research mappings and policy documents produced by the Practics partners throughout the course of the pilot project.
The new Practics Infotools section contains links to useful country-specific and EU-wide information about three key topics for artist’ mobility: regulatory issues, opportunities and resources. The Practics Infotools is aimed for artist or a cultural professional interested in travelling, working, training abroad who need information about taxation, visas, social security, funding, contracts and other "mobility issues"
PRACTICS has set up four pilot Infopoints, in Belgium, the Netherlands, Spain and Wales, which provide reliable and tailor-made practical information to artists and cultural professionals willing to engage on cross-border mobility and cooperation in Europe.
This PRACTICS-OTM joint action is part of the collaboration with OTM developed within the PRACTICS project.
