TelepART Mobility Support
TelepART Art Funding programme helps emerging performing artists within theatre, performance, circus, dance and music to showcase their work internationally. The fast-access funding supports the mobility, international networking and the art-community between Finland and Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Artists living and working in Finland and travelling to German speaking Europe for performances, and vice versa, are free to apply for funding.
The funding programme enables artists to react quickly to work opportunities. The TelepART funding can be used for travel, accommodation and transportation expenses. Grants will only be considered for projects where the organiser, performer and their representatives are committed to the production. Applicants must be able to demonstrate high artistic value, the performer(s) must receive a decent compensation for their work and actors from Finland and at least one of the countries, where the Finnish Institute in Germany is active, have to be involved in the production. The maximum amount that can be applied for is 1000€ and the grant can cover at most 50 % of all costs. The applicant can be the artist, a representative of the artist or the event organiser.
The Finnish Institute makes the grant decisions with the support of the performing arts expert organisations Music Finland, Dance Info Finland, Theatre Info Finland (TINFO) and CircusInfo Finland. TelepART Art is open for applications throughout the year with the exemption of the Institute’s summer and winter closure times. Applications will be processed within two weeks.
