A new mobility opportunity for artists receiving EU funding has been launched: i-Portunus. It’s a project, selected and funded by the European Union, to trial a mobility scheme for artists and culture professionals.
Headed by the Goethe Institute, a consortium of cultural organisations will examine how to implement mobility for individuals working in the cultural and creative sectors. i-Portunus will trial how to best facilitate cross-border mobility for artists.
The project will support short-term (15-85 days), flexible mobility from one country to another with the aim of establishing or improving collaborations, creating new work, developing audiences and so on. This type of mobility will become a permanent Action under the Creative Europe programme for 2021-2027.
The Call focuses solely on the visual and performing arts sectors. Individuals from all countries participating in the Creative Europe programme are eligible to apply.
