A new mobility opportunity for artists receiving EU funding has been launched today. i-Portunus is 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.

Between April and September 2019, i-Portunus will issue three calls for proposals, funding the mobility of about 500 individual artists and culture professionals. 

Today’s Call focuses solely on the visual and performing arts sectors.  Individuals from all countries participating in the Creative Europe programme are eligible to apply.
