E-motional is launched! Call for proposals – Mobility & networking grants 2011

The E-MOTIONAL Bodies & Cities’ organisers are currently launching the first call for proposals in the frame of the project’s Motion Fund. This strand represents a special funding scheme aimed at promoting cross-border mobility of the dance sector as well as encouraging the implementation of artists-in-residence activities in the participating countries.

Contemporary dance professionals (artists, managers, academics, etc.) from Romania – Ireland – Latvia – Cyprus – United Kingdom – Turkey are invited to apply for a mobility and networking grant in order to visit and attend specific events (festivals, workshops, international seminars, network meetings, etc.) taking place in the other project countries from September 2011 to March 2012. These visits are expected to be short trips with the purpose of exploring the contemporary dance scene in a specific country, making contacts and possibly planning future projects and exchanges. The duration of the visit shall be between 4-7 days according to each proposal submitted. The grant will cover a portion of the international travel expenses, accommodation and/or per diem to the maximum limit of EUR 1.000.

To apply, please fill out the enclosed application form after consulting the enclosed short list of events in each of the partner countries. Please send this application by email to motionfund@e-motional.eu on or before July 31, 2011. Successful candidates will be notified by mid-August 2011.
