I-Portunus

From 9 December 2020 to 15 April 2021
French professionals / Foreign professionals
The Institut français and its European partners, the Goethe-Institut (in Belgium) and Izolyatsia (in Ukraine), are launching the 2nd edition of the i-Portunus pilot project to support mobility of artists’ and professionals in the cultural and creative sectors in Europe. i-Portunus is a project co-financed by the European Union’s Creative Europe programme.
More than ever, the i-Portunus programme undertakes to support mobility projects and meet the needs of creative sectors by offering a simple and flexible scheme. The main objective of i-Portunus is to put creators and culture professionals in contact with each other by supporting collaboration projects requiring mobility outside the country they live in, in countries eligible for the Europe creative programme. Virtual or hybrid mobilities can also be envisaged depending how the health conditions and instructions develop.
This project should allow about 200 artists’ and professionals’ mobilities to be supported for periods of 7 to 60 days, in all States eligible for Creative Europe.
Applications are closed
