i-Portunus is a short-term pilot project, selected and funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union, to trial a mobility scheme for artists and culture professionals. It is managed by a consortium headed by the Goethe-Institut with Institut français, Izolyatsia and Nida Art Colony of Vilnius Academy of Arts.
Between April and September 2019, the pilot project i-Portunus will issue three Calls for Applications, providing support for international mobilities of artists active in the fields of the performing or visual arts (except music) and residing in a Creative Europe country. The destination of the mobility must be a Creative Europe country. The deadline for applications in this call is 24 June!
The 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.
The main objective of your mobility must be one of the following:
International collaborations: For example, you are working on a cultural production, such as an exhibition, a performance, a theatre piece, with an international partner.
Production-oriented residencies: For example, the result of your mobility will be a public presentation of a newly created body of work - an exhibition, a performance, a publication, etc.
Professional development: For example, you will take part in auditions, network meetings, showcases, workshops, master classes, and other types of training outside of formal education.
Presentation: For example, you will present an exhibition, a performance, a theatre piece in the destination country.
The applicant should organise a project with a host institution or partner in another Creative Europe country (or in several other countries).

The level of support depends on the length of the mobility:
15 to 29 days 1500 euros
30 to 59 days: 2400 euros
