Welcome to the i-Portunus website! Here you will find the latest news and all the info you need to apply to the EU’s mobility scheme for artists, cultural professionals or hosts!
Are you an artist, creator or cultural professional looking for international collaborations, to go abroad for your professional development, to find new audiences, to present your work, to co-produce or co-create with others? Are you a well-established artist, or a cultural organisation willing to host artists or cultural professionals, to work together on a common project?
i-Portunus is a demand-driven mobility scheme that provides financial support and allows direct applications in cultural fields (except for the audio-visual sectors) via a straightforward and flexible process, from either:
Currently, i-Portunus is implemented by two pilot projects, managed by two consortia of cultural organisations.
- One project, headed by the Goethe Institute, has already launched five Calls for applications in the cultural sectors of Music, Literary Translation, Architecture and Cultural Heritage and funds mobility for individuals.
- A second project, headed by the European Cultural Foundation, will be funding cultural mobility via an upcoming Call for Applications for hosts.
The results of these two projects, in addition to the first project implemented in 2019, will be reviewed by the European Commission in designing the final form of i-Portunus and its funding parameters, as a permanent action of the Creative Europe programme 2021-2027. The first projects in the new programme are planned to start in 2022.
