Cultural mobility, whether for work, co-production or participation in a seminar or residency, is integral to the practice and career of artists and cultural professionals in Asia and Europe. The benefits of such mobility are personal (e.g. building professional capacities, co-creating international work, broadening markets for one’s work and finding new professional contacts etc.) but they also ensure public good (e.g. maintaining a heterogeneous world of ideas, increasing the diversity of the cultural content produced and consumed, fostering intercultural competencies, socio-economic benefits for local festivals and venues).
