Musicboard Berlin has a program funding bands who go on tour as support acts. Berlin-based jazz musicians can apply for a program organised by the Senate Department for Culture and Europe. On a national level, the short tour funding program by Initiative Musik supports trips that include showcase festivals or events in other countries. Artists from the heavy metal and hard rock scene can apply for funding with the Wacken Foundation. Berlin-based actors from the music industry are supported by Berlin Music Commission’s Music Ambassador program to represent the city of Berlin at networking and industry events in Germany and abroad. Artists-in-residency programs for Berlin-based musicians are available via Musicboard Berlin,  the federal government and the Goethe Institute. Berlin’s Senate Department for Culture and Europe also offers travel allowances for work abroad. The information portal On the Move offers free mobility information guides and a newsletter containing current calls for applications.
