NEW CALL for I-Portunus – Mobility Fund for Artists
The mobility programme i-Portunus has just issued another call for artists in literary translation and music and for the first time ever, architects and those involved in Cultural Heritage. The scheme continues to support the mobility of artists, creators and cultural professionals among all countries participating in the Creative Europe Programme. Launched as a pilot project last year, I-Portunus has successfully funded mobilities for artists from various genres.
The i-Portunus mobility scheme is needed now more than ever to address the existing and new needs of the creative sectors by offering a demand-driven mobility scheme that allows direct application through a straightforward and flexible process.
i-Portunus’ main focus is to connect artists and to support international collaborations, professional development and production-oriented residencies. This will be done via physical mobility but also, if necessary, by virtual or blended mobility variations.
The fund foresees a total budget of EUR 500,000 spread over the upcoming five calls. Financial support will exist out of a fixed amount per applicant for transportation and a per diem, depending on the destination country.
Applicants should organize a project with a host institution/partner/fellow in another Creative Europe country. Interested applicants are encouraged to visit the database of Transartists, where host organisations that previously welcomed i-Portunus grantees are highlighted. The application should include a description of the project and its main objective, being international collaboration, production-oriented residency, or professional development. The application should also provide documents showing commitment from a partner to the proposed project.
