Mobility Information Points (MIP)
Mobility Information Points (MIP) are information centres and/or websites in several European countries, and one in the USA, who aim to tackle administrative challenges that artists and cultural professionals can face when working across borders. Relevant issues can be around visas, social security, taxation, customs etc.
MIP are usually key players at national and European levels who advocate – together with other networks and organisations – for better conditions for artists and cultural professionals working internationally.
The aim is to establish / connect with potential or existing MIP within Europe (in un-represented countries) and beyond Europe as well (as is the case now for the USA).
MIP are all different in terms of structure or organisation. They can be stand-alone organisations or be part of existing public and / or locally funded cultural organi-sations. They usually have strong connections with ministries and administrations in their respective contexts and with legal experts or consultants.
