I-Portunus fund 343 artists and cultural professionals

Toward way for new scheme enabling European artists to work abroad

Some key data from the third i-Portunus call

The Commission has successfully tested a new scheme to promote the mobility of artists and cultural professionals. i-Portunus, a pilot funded through the EU´s Creative Europe programme, is a concrete result of the New European Agenda for Culture adopted in 2018. With a budget of €1 million in 2019, i-Portunus funded 343 artists and cultural professionals in the performing or visual arts from 36 countries to spend a period of 15 to 85 days working abroad.

Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport, Tibor Navracsics, said: “I am proud to have launched this first-ever EU funded scheme helping artists and cultural professionals to gain experience abroad and build new partnerships with other creators across borders. This is key to boosting innovation and competitiveness in Europe's cultural and creative sectors which have an important role to play in our economies and societies.”

To qualify for support from i-Portunus, applicants had to demonstrate a specific and well-defined objective, such as developing an international collaboration, engaging in a production-oriented residency or in professional development in the destination country. Between April and September 2019, more than 3,200 applications for support were submitted by artists and cultural professionals.

Feedback from the participants and the cultural sectors has been very positive. i-Portunus resonated most with young and emerging artists. A conference in Brussels on 15 and 16 October brought together some of the artists taking part as well as major stakeholders representing sectors such as music, theatre, dance, festivals and literature, and national and international cultural institutes like the European Cultural Foundation to discuss how to improve the scheme. The discussions will feed into the recommendations that stakeholders will present to the Commission at the end of the project.

Next steps

In 2020, the Commission will invest another €1.5 million in two similar trials. The results and recommendations from all pilots will then define the permanent action proposed for the next Creative Europe programme 2021-2027.

Background

In May 2018, the European Commission published its Communication “A New European Agenda for Culture” which sets out objectives for cooperation at EU level and proposes 25 priority actions. One of these is to encourage “the mobility of professionals in the cultural and creative sectors”. A cross-border mobility scheme for artists and creative people was also included in the 2018 Creative Europe Work Programme, to test a new funding scheme to be scaled up in 2019 and 2020, and implemented on a regular basis after 2020 under the future Creative Europe programme.

i-Portunus is a short-term pilot project, selected and funded by Creative Europe, the EU programme which supports the European culture and audiovisual sectors.

To implement this new initiative, a call for tenders was published in 2018. The successful bidder was a consortium consisting of the Goethe-Institut (Germany), Institut francais (France), Nida Art Colony of Vilnius Academy of Arts (Lithuania) and Izolyatsia (Ukraine). The pilot project started in January and will run until February 2020 when the consortium is due to put forward its evaluation and policy recommendations.
