Matthew Covey, founder and partner of Tamizdat -a nonprofit organization that facilitates international cultural exchange- will visit Brussels and Amsterdam on 19, 20 and 21 June to promote a white paper on artist mobility to the United States. Next to this, he will give an update on U.S. border policies to key players, such as European cultural networks and Dutch public art funds mediators and companies. 

Matthew Covey will visit, among others, the European Commission, IETM, On The Move and will meet with several Dutch public funds and industry related organisations. 

Planning on travelling to the USA?
Do you know what kind of visa you need when travelling to the USA as an artist? For the last two years, with the support of the U.S. National Endowment for the Arts, Tamizdat has been conducting a study of the U.S. artist visa process. The product of that research is now available as a draft white paper on artist mobility to the United States. The document is currently being circulated to organizations that have shown interest in the project. During the visitor's talk on Wednesday June 21st Matthew Covey will update the Dutch cultural sector on the latest visa procedures.
