"Artists moving & learning", PACTE-CNRS, DEUSTO (2010)
The study analyses the impact of mobility of artists in Europe from an educational and Life Long Learning perspective. What are the effects of their cross-border movements –as bursaries in artists’ residencies or as guest artists in festivals, museums or galleries? Does mobility boost the creativity and of artists? Can non-formal learning resulting from artistic mobility be formalised by integrating it into initial professional education for artists? How can instruments for life-long learning target better the needs of mobile artists? To examine these questions, the “Artists moving & learning” partners have conducted interviews with artists from the performing and visual arts in ten EU Member States: Belgium, France, Hungary, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Spain and the UK.

This article describes and compares seven artistic intervention residency programs in five European countries, showing commonalities and differences in their structures, objectives, funding arrangements and implementation processes, and illustrating diverse ways of documenting the “values-added” from such interventions.
