The portal is in Czech and English and is therefore available both to Czech creatives and managers in culture and to foreign professionals collaborating with the Czech art scene.
When setting up the InfoPoint, ATI leaned on the long-lasting cooperation with foreign partners and networks and on their experience in creating similar platforms, such as DutchCulture/TransArtists, Wales Arts International, and MobiCulture. Our most important partners include On the Move, a network promoting international mobility. We have used mainly the know-how of Touring Artists, a German information portal for mobility issues, operated under the Berlin centre ITI, which became the key foreign partner of our project in 2017. Our main partner in the preparation of studies in the Czech Republic is the Fair Art association.
The project is funded by the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic and is based on the Strategy of Support for the Arts in the Czech Republic 2015-2020, specifically priority task No. 30: To set up and support an InfoPoint for the mobility of artists to provide Czech artists, theorists, and other workers in the cultural sector with information and advice to make it easier for them to be professionally active abroad and likewise to make it easier to welcome foreign artists in the Czech Republic – based on a Recommendation of the European Commission. This task is also based on priority 4.2.1 of the State Cultural Policy.
