Describe the main features of the policy/measure: 
DutchCulture is the network and knowledge organisation for international cultural cooperation. It supports the Dutch cultural and creative sector, public authorities and diplomatic missions in the pursuit of their international ambitions. DutchCulture is part of the Dutch Basic Cultural Infrastructure. Within the programme TransArtists (TA), DutchCulture shares knowledge and experience about artist-in-programmes and other international opportunities for creative professionals to temporarily stay and work elsewhere. TA offers all information about facts, use and value of international artist-in-residence opportunities. TA aims to make the enormous worldwide residential art labyrinth accessible and usable to artists through the website, workshops, newsletters, research and projects. The main tool is the biggest source of information on artist-in-residence opportunities worldwide and includes over 1400 artistic residencies. Next to helping the artists, the goal of TA is to strengthen the artist residency field with AiR Platform NL, organising meetings, offer practical advice to AiR organisers, funds and policymakers, connect initiatives with (international) partners and networks and establish projects for the mutual exchange of information and expertise. For this, a platform has been built for artist-in-residence initiatives and partners to connect, exchange information and experiences, and to establish collaborations and projects in the Netherlands, Flanders and abroad. AiR Platform NL also supports Platform Werkplaatsen, a network of technical work spaces for art professionals in the Netherlands and Flanders. Some public funds for culture and supporting institutions support the participation of Dutch artists in residencies abroad.
