An International Infopoint

Collaborating, performing and building creative relationships across borders can be an inspirational experience for artists. However, organising multi-national cultural projects and understanding the legal requirements of international taxation and visa regulations can be a complicated task.

Wales Arts International is one of four European infopoints for international working and can provide information and advice on a range of topics.

Artists coming to Wales can click on the links on the right hand side to find answers to some frequently asked questions such as:-

· I’m a performer coming to work for an organisation in Wales. Do I need a visa and a certificate of sponsorship?

· I’m a visual artist and I’d like to sell my work in Wales. How do I make sure I’ll only be taxed once on this income?

· Where can I find information about the arts scene, language and history of Wales?

Artists based in Wales can contact us for advice on building a project overseas, working with international practitioners, accessing international networks and finding funding for their international work.

You can contact us on +44 (0)2920 441320 or if you’d like to discuss your question in more detail.

There are three other infopoints that can advise and assist with information on working in Belgium, Spain and The Netherlands. On their websites you will find useful information on working in each country as an artist, and you can also contact them using the information below for further advice.

The network of infopoints is supported by funding from the European Union through a pilot project, PRACTICS. The project started in 2008 and has been looking at barriers to artist mobility through research, sharing information and the creation of four 'Infopoints'.
