The information portal for artists and creatives working internationally
Artistic creation often goes hand in hand with cross-border work. This results in various practical issues and, under certain circumstances, even organizational difficulties for artists, creatives and persons engaged in the cultural sector, e.g., concerning social security, taxes, or insurance issues, which pertain both to work stays and collaborations within the EU and projects beyond EU borders.
www.touring-artists.info provides answers to questions regarding international mobility for artists, creatives and persons engaged in the cultural sector in Germany as well as those who want to work in Germany.
