The Creative Europe Desk Ireland – Culture Office is hosting a short online briefing on the upcoming i-Portunus funding call targeted to the music sector on Thursday 21 January 2021 at 11am. You can register for the session here.
i-Portunus (https://www.i-portunus.eu/) is the European Commission’s mobility funding strand to support the cultural and creative sectors across Europe. As a legacy from 2020 there will be four targeted calls in the first quarter of 2021.
The music call is now open for applications and the deadline is 28 February 2021 at 5pm. This call is open to composers, musicians and singers (preferably in classical music, jazz and traditional music). The award supports international collaborations, production oriented residencies and professional development for artists.
The award is open to both individuals and groups of up to 5 people. The maximum available grant per person is €3,000. The mobility activities can last between 7 and 60 days and can begin from 1 June 2021 and must be completed by 30 November 2021.
