Every year, in the spring and fall, Organisation internationale de la Francophonie (OIF) launches two calls for proposals for Funds for helping artist mobility. OIF helps professional artists and their shows (music, theatre, and dance) travel by providing support for international tours and festivals, giving artists from OIF countries in the South and in Central and Eastern Europe access to international event organizers.
Through this fund, OIF helps ensure that performances and productions from francophone countries are included in world-class cultural events by covering artists' travel costs. Assistance is also provided to administrators in the field of music so they can attend international professional meetings. Some 30 tours are funded annually, allowing them to take part in some 60 festivals.
For more information, visit the OIF website. Projects must be submitted at least four months in advance.
