Funded by Creative Europe, the Artist Mobility Scheme will help individual artists and culture professionals to move between European countries, develop audiences and collaborations, find new inspiration, and contribute to Europe’s diverse cultural ecosystems.
The Pilot Artist Mobility Scheme will allow 500 artists or culture professionals to take part in this experimental program which will test different durations of mobility for varying professional purposes over the course of six months from April to September, 2019.
The Mobility Scheme is managed by i-Portunes on behalf of the European Commission by Goethe-Institut, in consortium with the Institut Français, Izolyatsia and Nida Art Colony of Vilnius Academy of Arts. i-Portunes will test a small-scale mobility scheme with 500 people. The results of this pilot project will be key in shaping a new action in the Creative Europe programme, 2021-2027.
i-Portunes will issue three calls between April and September 2019 to fund the mobility of individual artists and culture professionals of all ages, nationalities, educational qualifications and levels of experience from countries participating in the Creative Europe programme.* In order to achieve a critical mass, this pilot project will focus on two sectors: the Performing Arts and the Visual Arts.
The first call will open on 15 April 2019. Full details on the pilot mobility scheme – terms and conditions, how to apply, evaluation procedures etc - will be available on the i-Portunes website from 15 April, 2019.
