Funding Opportunity: British Council International Collaboration Scheme

The British Council has launched its International Collaboration Grants, a £3.5m, programme of grants now available to UK and international organisations to collaborate internationally.

These new International Collaboration Grants are now available for UK and international organisations, including Ireland, to collaborate on digital, face to face, and / or hybrid artistic projects.

The grants are designed to support artists to make and develop creative artwork with their international peers and encourage new global partnerships and innovative approaches to collaboration.

Grants of up to £75k are available to UK and international organisations. Applications must demonstrate genuine international collaboration and an explicit benefit to individual artists and international partners, and projects should address significant contemporary themes, from climate change to global challenges. 

The British Council will be holding an Information Webinar for organisations and artists interested in learning more:

You are also invited to their International Meet-ups – an opportunity to connect with people from the UK and around the world who are interested in applying for the grants as well. Join to grow your network, ask for advice, and maybe even find a new partner. Spaces are limited, so register now – first come first served!

The application portal will open on 15 October and the deadline for applications 4 November.
