International mobility and exchange
The Benelux countries and Finland

Promoting the international mobility of culture professionals and influencers is a key focus for the Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux. Through our work, we facilitate exhibitions and performances in Finland and the Benelux countries and also offer travel and accommodation bursaries to encourage international visits and collaboration. Our role is to foster international projects between academics, journalists and administrators. The Institute’s international mobility funding is available to both freelancers and permanent employees and it can also be used to fund performances across a number of artistic disciplines through the TelepART program.
