For policy makers on culture in EU (20/2/012)
Information standards for the mobility of artists and cultural professionals adopted

The European Commission set up in May 2011 an EU expert group on mobility information standards to develop common content and quality standards for information and advice relating to the mobility of artists and cultural professionals.

The group was composed of representatives from the culture ministries of EU Member States and representatives of European cultural sector organisations from all arts disciplines who have proven experience of dealing with the mobility of artists and cultural professionals. The member of the group was also Dušan Dovč, who represented Artservis/SCCA, Center for Contemporary Arts – Ljubljana, Slovenia.

The result of the expert group’s work is the text Information standards for the mobility of artists and cultural professionals (MIS), which was conducted from May 2011 to December 2011. The MIS text was in February formaly successfully presented to the members of the Cultural Affairs Committee (CAC).

The main target group of these information standards are policy makers in the EU Member States. The standards provide them with practical guidance for setting up4 information services by identifying mobility related issues for which the availability of information at national level would benefit outgoing artists and cultural professionals, as well as those coming from abroad (from EU and non-EU countries).

Ultimately the information provided as a result of applying these standards will benefit cultural organisations, individual artists, cultural professionals, and small-scale cultural enterprises which are mobile or wish to be mobile across borders.

The next step is to "spread the word" as much as possible. You are invited to disseminate this text through appropriate websites and any other appropriate means, and actively promote it to your national/regional policy makers and authorities.
