Artists’ Mobility In / Connected To Africa: Realities, Challenges and Positive Practices

Venue: Jatka78 – PQ Talks Stage, Prague Quadriennal, Date: 14 June 2023, Time: 14:30-16:00

The first results of the Visas: Mobility from African Countries to Schengen Countries will be shared at the Prague Quadrennial on 14 June 2023. It will be followed by a conversation, which will provide an opportunity to discuss the findings of this ongoing mapping of practices of funding mobility for artists and cultural professionals within and with Africa.


Who are still the key actors? To what extent have new forms of solidarity and collaborative practices developed, including with the private sector? How can this information be made more accessible? How to deal with the remaining challenges related to visas or administrative problems, in particular for artists and cultural professionals from the African continent? How to reach people outside the information networks? How to democratise access to information in order to support mobility in Africa?


These and related questions will be addressed in this talk, which will also be an opportunity to share existing and ongoing mapping and action tools useful for the sector.
