Who is this webinar for?

This webinar is primarily for UK organisations and professionals managing transnational, multi-annual Creative Europe projects with elements of incoming short-term mobility and activity, however we are also opening this webinar up to other UK arts, cultural and heritage organisations who are also looking to plan for future projects and work involving incoming EU & EEA artists and other professionals.

*Please note that, to keep numbers manageable, this webinar is not designed for EU/EEA artists and cultural professionals based in other countries seeking advice on visiting or working in the UK.

The advice and support will be focused on UK organisations and professionals organising activities such as residencies, training, showcasing, festivals, touring, shows, community engagement projects, and other activities which may include incoming EU/EEA professionals.*

What will be covered?

The webinar will cover the various routes available – visitor route; permitted paid engagements and permit-free festivals; and Tier 5 short-term sponsored work route for the creative sector.

For the various routes, we’ll aim to examine questions such as:

  • What kind of activity is and isn’t permitted?
  • How long can the stay last?
  • What is classified as paid work? Where do other forms of reimbursement and commissioning fit in?
  • What kind of evidence, if any, is needed in order to be assured of entry in a particular route?
  • What kind of timescales need to be taken into consideration?
  • What other considerations need to be taken into account?

Featuring:

  • Welcome from Creative Europe Desk UK and Arts Infopoint UK
  • Presentation, examples, and Q&A on main UK incoming work and engagement routes from immigration solicitors Gary McIndoe and Shara Pledger at Latitude Law
  • Insights from UK cultural professionals with previous experience in navigating incoming routes when inviting non UK-based artists and other cultural professionals
  • Presentation from Marie Fol , President of On the Move, on the Mobility Info Point network, and information sources for outgoing mobility to other European countries

Insights from the sector

Zelie Flach from Wales Arts International will talk about the current pilot Arts Infopoint UK in development, which aims to support the arts, creative and cultural sector with information on practical issues relating tomobility.

We’ll also soon be confirming a speaker with existing experience of managing incoming mobility issues to feed in some insights on how working with these routes works in practice too.

Outgoing mobility to EU/EEA countries

Towards the end of the session Marie Fol, President of On the Move, will give a short presentation on the Mobility Info Point network, to give a picture of the existing kinds of information and advice available for outgoing mobility to EU and EEA countries from January onwards.
