All Calls are closed.
The third Call for Applications was for artists and culture professionals (individuals or groups of up to 5 people) aged 18+, active in the fields of performing arts (except music) and visual arts, of all educational qualifications and levels of experience, legally residing in a Creative Europe country as well as their overseas countries and territories.
- Applications had to be submitted in English, using the online i-Portunus application form, by the deadline, as indicated in the Call for Applications.
- Applications had to include all of the information requested in the application form.
- Applicants had to be artists or culture professionals active in the fields of the visual or performing arts (except music), at least 18 years old, and legal residents of a Creative Europe country as well as their overseas countries and territories.
- In case of a group application:
- One person had to submit an application for the entire group, including the name, nationality, date of birth and country of residence of the other group members in the Application Form. The requested CV should reflect the group, idem for the artistic portfolio and the recent work experience. We request only 1 CV per group and 1 artistic portfolio.
- We defined “a group” as a fixed amount of people (up to 5) having the same coherent mobility project. People from the group could come from and return to different countries, but the mobility project required the group to travel to the same country of destination, arriving and leaving on the same dates: the mobility had to focus on one single group project. If one (or several) person(s) from this group would not undertake a trans-national mobility this person would not receive the mobility support: i-Portunus supports individual artists and culture professionals who undertake a trans-national mobility. If group members had different durations of the mobility, or travelled to different destinations, then the group was not eligible and it was recommended to apply individually.
- The group couldn’t be a “company” or a “legal entity”, since i-Portunus is designed for individual artists. Sub-contractor agreements were made with each individual artist.
- The entire group had to be hosted by a partner organisation: a member of your group cannot act as a host organisation.
- If any member of the group had previously received i-Portunus mobility support, the application was rejected.
- Each person in the group received the same amount of mobility support depending on the length of the mobility. We made a separate contract with each applicant and we asked each applicant to submit proof of the mobility:
- Electronic boarding pass / train ticket
- Pictures of the beneficiary during the mobility
- Activity on social media
- The destination of the mobility had to be a Creative Europe country.
- The departure date had to be on or after 11 October 2019; the return date on or before 31 December 2019. The total length of the mobility had to be between 15 and 60 days (including travel days). It could be continuous, or segmented: a continuous mobility meant that you have one round-trip travel, to one or several destinations. A segmented mobility meant that you could travel several times, to one or several destinations. Each trip had tp last a minimum of 5 days, and the total number of days still had to be between 15 and 60.
- The mobility had to focus on one project.
- The Applicant could not have received i-Portunus mobility support
Failure to comply with these requirements lead to the rejection of an application.
