TelepART Mobility Support

The Finnish Institute in Germany launched the TelepART funding programme in January 2018 in order to help emerging performing artists showcase their work internationally. The rapid-access style funding is designed to support the expenses for Finnish artists travelling to Germany, Switzerland and Austria or German, Austrian and Swiss artists travelling to Finland. Young researchers can also apply for mobility support.

The Finnish Institute in Germany promotes artistic and academic collaboration between Finland, Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The TelepART funding programme is designed especially for emerging talent in performing arts (theatre, performance, circus, dance and music) and young researchers.

The programme enables artists and researchers to react quickly to opportunities due to its new rapid-access funding. TelepART funding is open for applications throughout the year. Grants will only be considered for projects where the organiser, performer/researcher and their representatives are committed to the project.

You can apply for TelepART-support at

Applicants from performing arts must be able to demonstrate high artistic value, the production must be a collaboration between at least two countries and the performer(s) must receive reasonable compensation for their work. Researchers will be evaluated by academic merit, the significance of the funding for the applicant’s professional and academic activities and the impact of the project on the quality and quantity of academic exchange between Finland and the specified country.

The Finnish Institute makes the grant decisions with the expert performing arts organisations Music Finland, Dance Info Finland, TINFO Finnish Theatre Information Centre and CircusInfo Finland. Applications will be processed within two weeks. Applications from researchers will be decided by the Finnish Institute within two weeks.

TelepART was launched by the Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux in 2016.
