Together with Kultura Nova Foundation (Zagreb) and Mitost (Berlin), European Cultural Foundation will soon launch a new pilot mobility scheme. The pilot, being part of the i-Portunus mobility schemes initiated and co-funded by the European Union, will focus on physical, hybrid and virtual mobility.
The Corona pandemic challenges mobility in the cultural sector everywhere in Europe. Hosting co-productions and borderless travel that were essential routines in arts and culture until a year ago remain drastically limited. This current reality, together with a global changing vision on mobility in the context of our climate, triggered the interest of the European Cultural Foundation and its partners to focus on this.
While the consortium strongly believes in the value of making real-life contacts across European borders, hybrid forms of cultural mobility and virtual collaboration may provide another form of transnational exchanges. As long as the pandemic lasts, but also in view of a less travel-intense, more equally accessible and greener future of cultural mobility.
