Third i-Portunus Mobility Contest

Third i-Portunus Mobility Contest


The third i-Portunus call for mobility of artists and cultural professionals working in the field of visual and performing arts is open.

The pilot scheme i-Portunus is the first initiative by the European Commission in organising mobility for artists and culture professionals. The results of all projects will be taken into account by the European Commission in developing a permanent action under the Creative Europe Programme 2021-2017 dedicated to supporting the mobility of artists and cultural professionals. This is the third and the last call within i-Portunus scheme this year.

The conditions for applying are simple, and the applications can be submitted by private entity.

The main objective of the mobility application must be one of the following:

• International collaborations: For example, you are working on a cultural production, such as an exhibition, a performance, a theatre piece, with an international partner.

• Production-oriented residencies: For example, the result of your mobility will be a public presentation of a newly created body of work – an exhibition, a performance, a publication, etc.

• Professional development: For example, you will take part in auditions, network meetings, showcases, workshops, master classes, and other types of training outside of formal education.

More information on the required documentation is available on the I-Portunus website. The deadline for applications is September 5th at 2 pm.

Please note that i-Portunus grants allows you to travel to all countries participating in the Creative Europe program. Please find here the full list of Creative Europe participating countries.
