Movin'Up is the long-course Italian program to support the international mobility of artists and operators in the visual arts and entertainment sectors. The initiative aims to promote the work of Italian talents through real opportunities for visibility, concretely promoting participation in events of international interest and qualified training programs.
The initiative, which sees the partnership of the MiBACT and the GAI "Association for the Circuit of Young Italian Artists", is carried out through the allocation of an annual fund that allows artists to request a contribution to partially cover travel costs and / or residence and / or production in the host foreign city.
The Movin'up call is aimed at young creative people between 18 and 35 years of age who work with professional goals and who have been officially admitted or invited abroad by cultural institutions, festivals, public and private entities to competitions, residences, seminars , workshops, internships or similar initiatives or projects that have artistic productions and / or co-productions to be carried out at foreign centers and institutions.
Over the years, the Movin'Up project has achieved results such as:promotion of the work of Italian artists internationally through real opportunities for visibility and representation of their activity; support for the production of the most interesting projects from the point of view of innovation and multidisciplinarity, giving a boost to the circuitry of national artistic research in the world; support for the participation of young creatives in qualified training programs, workshops, internships organized by foreign institutions that offer real opportunities for artistic and professional growth.
The continuity of the project over the years is the result of close institutional collaboration between organizations committed to contemporary art and new generations and contributes to recognizing the value of emerging artistic creation. The expansion of the partnership with civil society (Puglia Region through the Apulian Public Theater Regional Consortium for Arts and Culture and GA / ER Young Artists Association of Emilia Romagna), has contributed to a greater territorial adhesion to the programs and the involvement of civil society ensuring renewed support for creative generations and the promotion of Italian arts abroad.
