New i-Portunus Artist Mobility Calls Open for Music and for Literary Translation

i-Portunus continues to support the mobility of artists, creators and cultural professionals among all countries participating in the Creative Europe Programme. A second pilot project was selected and co-funded by Creative Europe and is implemented by a consortium headed by Goethe-Institut with Institut français and Izolyatsia. This second phase runs from the end of 2020 until the end of 2021.

The aim of the i-Portunus mobility grants is to connect artists and support international collaborations. This will be done via physical mobility but also, if necessary, by virtual or blended mobility variations. Additional mobility support can be provided to artists, creators and cultural professionals living with a disability. 

In 2021, i-Portunus will launch five open calls for applications, targeting artists, creators and cultural professionals in music, literary translation, architecture and cultural heritage. Calls will open in December 2020, January 2021 and February 2021 respectively (see below for more details).

i-Portunus provides financial support to partially fund the cost of travel (transportation and accommodation ) to one or several Creative Europe countries. The duration of the mobility must be between 7 - 60 days and must take place latest before 30th November, 2021. Additional mobility support can be provided to artists, creators and cultural professionals living with a disability.
