Please join the Creative Europe Desk Ireland -Culture Office for our briefing event around the new call from the Creative Europe Programme- i-Portunus Houses.  We will go through the application process for this call and how Irish organisations and individual artists can apply for this opportunity.

i-Portunus Houses is open to hosts (organisation or established individual artists/cultural professionals) to team up with 2 to 5 artists and/or cultural professionals, legally residing in different Creative Europe countries + UK, with the intention to work together on one or more collaboration projects. The scheme is open for all cultural sectors (except audio-visual sectors), approaches and working modalities

This scheme puts focus on hosts underlining their value in providing efficient and ‘safe’ residencies & working environments for artists/cultural professionals.  i-Portunus Houses provide financial support to the host for sub-granting the cost of mobility (transport, accommodation etc.) to their receiving artists/cultural professionals (team members).

The main objective of your collaboration project has to be one of the following:

  • Create: (co-)creation of artistic work, production, performance
  • Connect: networking, internationalisation
  • Learn: increase competences, professional development
  • Explore: research, future collaborations/projects
