Finland | TelepART Mobility support grants [open deadline]
TelepART Mobility Support promotes opportunities for performing artists, scientists and researchers to travel and perform internationally. It is an easy and quick micro-funding format aimed for emerging and semi-established professional artists and young academics.
There are two different types of grants within TelepART Mobility Support, TelepART-taide and TelepART-tiede. TelepART-taide can be applied for performing art projects and TelepART-tiede can be applied for research events.
The grant is intended for travel and accommodation costs up to €1,000 and the funding decision is made within two weeks from the application.
In order to secure TelepART funding the Performer and/or the Organiser have to be based in Finland or in the operational area of the respective Finnish Cultural Institute, and the performance(s) must take place in either Finland or the operational area of the respective institute, representing collaboration between the two areas.
Run by the Finnish Cultural and Research Institutes, the platform hopes to generate more cultural and academic exchange opportunities between Finland and the following countries and regions (in both directions):
- The Netherlands
- United Kingdom
- Middle East and North Africa (excluding Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territory)
- United Kingdom
The platform is permanently open to applications, which can be submitted by individual academics or performers; groups; representatives of performers, such as agencies; or event organisers. Applicants will be notified of the decision within two weeks of submitting the application.
Funding may be granted for travel, accommodation and shipping costs. Starting from €100, the support is limited to a maximum of €1,000. The grant must not represent more than 50% of the total cost of the production
Please note: due to the current COVID-19 situation and the travel restrictions between Finland and Japan, we are not able to accept new applications for Finland-Japan mobility grants at the moment. We will re-evaluate the situation on regular basis, and re-open the application process as soon as possible.
