On 25-26 April 2024, Caernarfon, Wales will be the UK’s first-ever host of a major international cultural gathering where 80 global Artists and Industry Leaders will meet for the Cultural Mobility Forum organised by On the Move and hosted by Arts Council of Wales and its in-house agency, Wales Arts International.

On the Move is the leading professional network for agencies providing information to support artists and cultural organisations to work internationally. Its Cultural Mobility Forum is a forum to share knowledge and to discuss and imagine new ways of working for artists and cultural companies in a complex world. It’s co-funded by the European Union’s Creative Europe Programme and Arts Council of Wales and delivered in partnership with Welsh Government and British Council who are supporting a cultural delegation from Ukraine to visit Wales ahead of the forum. Key topics under discussion include freedom of speech, creating a sanctuary for artists fleeing persecution, skills needed by creatives to collaborate internationally at a time of climate emergency and other global challenges.
