What you should bear in mind
Working abroad has a number of practical consequences as well as consequences that can affect productions. The legislation in the field of liability is different from in the Netherlands. You may need a work permit. It involves extra administration and you may well need additional funding.
Information and advice
The website of SICA contains information on international cultural traffic and on the CCP that offers specialised information about European funding programmes for heritage and other projects. On the Move encourages cooperation and mobility in the cultural sector at a cross-border level, promoting cultural diversity. They offer funding to students and professionals in arts.
SICA also provides information about the import and export of specific and protected cultural items.
Insurance during employment abroad
If you are going to work abroad for any length of time, you need to arrange insurance to cover that period of employment. In many cases it is possible to remain insured in the Netherlands. In that case you should apply to the Social Insurance Bank (SVB) for an (E)101/A1 declaration. This declaration is proof to another country that you are not obliged to pay certain deductions from your wages or income. For more information visit the SVB website.
