The LINA platform fosters mobility and development of international creative professionals in the field of city planning and architecture: architects, urban planners, landscape architects, designers, artists, curators, theoreticians, and other transdisciplinary practitioners and researchers dealing with spatial, territorial, climate, and socio-political challenges. As eligible emerging artists, the LINA platform will consider all those who:

The applicant may be an individual or a collective.

LINA is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union. Eligible applicants for the LINA programme are applicants who can demonstrate - at the time of application and throughout their participation in the programme - nationality or legal residency status in participating countries of the Creative Europe Programme with a valid passport, identity card or residency confirmation, issued by a legal entity in one of the eligible countries. This residency status will be verified when signing collaboration agreements. Failure to provide proof of legal residency status will result in disqualification from the programme.
