Open for application: i-Portunus, a European pilot-programme for mobility funding

23 april 2019
The Creative Europe programme is conducting trials on facilitating cross-border mobility for artists to boost creativity, explore markets and develop careers.

The outcome of the trials serves as a run-up to mobility becoming a permanent action under the Creative Europe programme for 2021-2027. The first trial is i-Portunus, a series of three different mobility calls that fund mobility-related costs such as transport and accommodation for artists travelling between countries participating in the Creative Europe programme. It is managed by a consortium headed by the Goethe-Institut with Institut français, Izolyatsia and Nida Art Colony of Vilnius Academy of Arts.

The i-Portunus pilot is open to artists active in performing arts and visual arts only. The deadline of the first call is May 15. After that two more calls will follow. The duration of the travel/exchange must be between 15 and 85 days, and should depart earliest June 15, 2019, and should return latest December 31, 2019. The available amount per application is between € 1500 and € 3400, depending on the length of your mobility.

More information can be found on the website and in the extensive Call for Applications handbook.
