Between April and September 2019, three calls for applications will be announced to support international mobility of artists active in the performing or visual arts and residing in a participating country of the EU’s ‘Creative Europe’ programme.
The call will be announced by Creative Europe’s “i-Portunus” project. Representatives from Armenia, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine are eligible to apply.
Successful applicants will receive support for 350 to 500 short-term (lasting 15 to 85 days) international visits, known as “mobilities”. 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.
i-Portunus is a project, funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union, to trial a mobility scheme for artists and culture professionals.
Creative Europe is the European Commission's programme supporting cultural diversity and the competitiveness of the European cultural and creative sectors. It foresees the participation of countries covered by the European Neighbourhood Policy.
