TelepART Mobility Support application

TelepART Mobility Support promotes opportunities for performing artists to travel and perform internationally. It is a light micro-funding format aimed for emerging and semi-established professional artists. Run by FinnAgora, the Finnish Institute in Budapest, the platform hopes to generate more cultural exchange opportunities between Finland and Hungary, Romania, Croatia, Slovenia, Slovakia & Czechia. All projects must include performers or event organisers from Finland and at least one of the above mentioned countries.  

General guidelines

The platform is permanently open to applications, which can be submitted by individual 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 accommodation, travel expenses and shipping costs to or from Finland. Starting from 100€, the support is limited to a maximum of EUR 1 000 and must not represent more than 50% of the total cost of the production (fee + travel + cargo). The funding is granted at the discretion the Finnish Institute in Budapest, in consultation with varying performing arts professionals. Notice that we do not accept applications for residencies. However, if there is a performance connected to the residency, it is possible to apply.  


The Finnish Institute considers the projects chosen for TelepART funding in its communication. For this purpose, we ask the applicant to provide a picture treating the project (including credits and the photographer) as well as the social media tags used in the project. The applicant also agrees that the section "Project description" of their application can be used as basis in the Institute's communication channels to promote the performance.

The application will be evaluated by the following criteria: - Artistic merit - The significance of the funding for the performer’s professional and artistic activities - The amount of funding applied for and the budget balance - The impact of the project on the quality and quantity of cultural exchange between Finland and countries in Southeast Europe. In order to be eligible for the grant, both the performer and the event organiser must have a preliminary commitment to the project.
