Three of the Fellowship of Questions partners have been successful in their bids to funding from i-Portunus—the EU’s mobility scheme for artists, cultural professionals and hosts!

UNION is working with Forum Apulum in Romania, and El Warcha in Portugal and together a coordinated scheme which means that each organisation will host two young cultural workers, one from each of the other countries.

The three-way collaboration will take place in May 2022 and will link to the general Fellowship of Questions theme; so the residencies will have no answers!

The two UNION participants involved are both graduates of the UNION ’19 programme; Grace Darbs will be travelling to Portugal, and Hannah Whitlow will be in residence in Romania. Meanwhile Lucian Barbu will be coming to Leeds from Romania and will work alongside Milton Tavares Mendes from Portugal

As Lucian Barbu explains:

“I am looking forward to take part in this exchange because I want to expand my level of practice from a cultural point of view. Seeing how art is made in different cultures would really help me enrich my own artistic work, making it universally relevant.”

The only sad thing is that this will be the last time that UK organisations can be part of this EU programme.

In the meantime, all six artists will start planning their collaborations in January…more news soon.
