i-Portunus > Test of a new cultural mobility scheme in Creative Europe countries (visual and performing arts)
i-Portunus is a pilot project that will test different approaches to supporting short-term mobility of artists and culture professionals between European countries.
The European Commission is considering the launch of a large-scale initiative to help individual artists and culture professionals “take advantage of flexible and short-term result-oriented opportunities”: to move between European countries*, develop audiences and collaborations, find new inspiration and opportunities, and fully benefit from – and contribute to – Europe’s diverse cultural ecosystems.
Between April and September 2019, the consortium** in charge of testing this new scheme will issue three calls, evaluate the proposals received, and support the mobility of selected artists and culture professionals (visual arts and performing arts***).
The first call is out: Deadline: 15 May 2019
* Creative Europe countries: All EU Member States and also Albania, Armenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Iceland, Kosovo *, Norway, Moldova, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia, Tunisia and Ukraine
** i-Portunus is implemented on behalf of the European Commission by Goethe-Institut, in consortium with the Institut français, Izolyatsiaand Nida Art Colony of Vilnius Academy of Arts.
