i-Portunus is a new pilot project funded by the European Commission under the Creative Europe programme which supports short-term mobility of artists and culture professionals.
It is managed by a consortium headed by the Goethe-Institut with Institut français, Izolyatsia and Nida Art Colony of Vilnius Academy of Arts.
i-Portunus will issue Calls for Applications, providing support for international mobilities of artists active in the fields of the performing or visual arts (except music) and residing in a Creative Europe country. The destination of the mobility must also be a Creative Europe country. These mobilities must have a specific and well-defined objective.
The main objective of the mobility must be one of the following:
- -International collaborations
- -Production-oriented residencies
- -Professional development
Who can apply?
Artists and culture professionals (individuals or groups of up to 5 people, not legal entities) aged 18+, active in the fields of performing arts and visual arts, of all educational qualifications and levels of experience, legally residing in a Creative Europe country and who has not previously received i-Portunus mobility support.
-The artists must do either visual arts (Crafts, Design, Digital arts, Fashion, Fine arts, Graphic arts, photography) or performing arts (Circus, Dance, Opera, Performance, Puppetry, Street Art, Theatre).
-The mobility must be between 15 and 85 days in length, and must take place between 25 July and 31 December 2019 and must focus on one project.
– It can be continuous, or segmented:
– a continuous mobility means that beneficiaries have one round-trip travel, to one or several destinations.
