International Mobility Project i-Portunus

International Mobility Project i-Portunus

19 April 2019—30 December 2019

i-Portunus is a project, selected and funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union, to trial a mobility scheme for 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

Between April and September 2019, i-Portunus will issue three Calls for Applications, providing support for 350-500 short-term (15-85 days), international mobilities of artists active in the fields of the performing or visual arts and residing in a Creative Europe country (see list opposite). These mobilities must have a specific and well-defined objective, such as to develop an international collaboration, to engage in a production-oriented residency or in professional development, to present work in another country or to develop projects with local communities in the destination country.

With projects like i-Portunus, the Commission will be conducting trials on how to best facilitate cross-border mobility for artists. This type of mobility will become a permanent Action under the Creative Europe programme for 2021-2027.
