Thanks to the Network strand of the Creative Europe funding, EDN is able to administer a limited amount of travel bursaries to members and their associates who attend EDN activities.
The purpose of travel bursaries is to support members and their associates to attend EDN activities.
We invite and encourage all members to involve their associated artists and members of staff in attending EDN activities.
Firstly, we set aside 40 travel bursaries each year for members to attend the yearly Think-in strategic planning meeting. This is to support the members’ engagement in the network’s strategic development, research, data collection and advocacy efforts.
Secondly, the EDNext project provides travel bursaries for members, freelance artists and professionals to attend other physical activities, such as the Atelier workshops and Carte Blanche exchanges. Each year, 13 such bursaries are available: on average 3 bursaries per activity.
There are two types of travel reimbursement within EDNext:
1.) Reimbursement of unit costs, calculated on the basis of distance bands with the EU Commission calculator (link).
2.) EDNext travel bursaries fixed at 300€
In some cases, the reimbursement of unit costs (1.) will not cover the total cost of your travel. When this causes financial difficulties, requesting a travel bursary (2.) might be a better option.
How does it work?
