News archive - WB Success Stories: I-PORTUNUS TRIAL A MOBILITY SCHEME FOR ARTISTS AND CULTURE PROFESSIONALS

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.

Between April and September 2019, i-Portunus 2019 issued three Calls for Applications, providing support for international mobilities of artists and/or culture professionals active in the fields of the performing or visual arts and residing in a Creative Europe country (see list opposite). The destination of the mobility had to be a Creative Europe country. These mobilities required a specific and well-defined objective, such as to develop an international collaboration, to engage in a production-oriented residency or in professional development in the destination country.
With projects like i-Portunus, the Creative Europe programme of the European Union will be conducting trials on how to best facilitate cross-national mobility for artists. This type of mobility will become a permanent Action under the Creative Europe programme for 2021-2027.
