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 the Creative Europe program and 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.
More than ever i-Portunus mobility is needed to answer to the existing and new needs of the creative sectors by offering a demand-driven mobility scheme that allows direct application through a straightforward and flexible process.
i-Portunus’ main focus is to connect artists and to support international collaborations. This will be done via physical mobility but also, if necessary, by virtual or blended mobility variations.
i-Portunus will launch five open calls for applications, targeting artists, creators and cultural professionals in music, literary translation, architecture and cultural heritage in December 2020, January 2021 and February 2021.
i-Portunus dedicates a total budget of 500.000 EUR with a fixed amount per applicant for transportation and per diem, depending on the destination country and the duration of the mobility.
