touring artists helpdesk service

(lifePR) ( Berlin, )
From October 1, 2014, artists and cultural professionals can make use of the touring artists helpdesk service for individual consultations on international projects and working stays abroad. The touring artists helpdesk service is a cooperation of the International Theatre Institute (ITI) Germany and IGBK with SMartDe - Netzwerk für Kreative e.V. and is open to all artists and cultural professionals free of charge. - the information portal for artists working internationally has now been online for 18 months. Counting about 14 000 users a month, it quickly proved to be an important information source in the cultural sector: thousands of cultural professionals found answers to their questions related to international cultural exchange.

ITI and IGBK have been jointly working on touring artists since 3 years. The project was initiated and is supported by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media (BKM). The tool offers profound information on the topics taxation, social security, visas, transport/customs, insurances, copyright, and financial support related to cross-border mobility. It primarily maps the legal regulations and administrative procedures in Germany - for foreign artists who work here temporarily and for artists in Germany who work abroad for a limited time. It also considers the perspective of Germany-based organizers.

In addition to the online information, users consistently keep asking for individual advice on the named topics - thus the touring artists helpdesk is now at service.

Further information on the consultation opportunities is available on the touring artists website and on the SMartDe website.
