British Council, International Collaboration Grants

11 Oct 2021

The British Council has launched a global funding opportunity, International Collaboration Grants.

The £3.5 fund will support UK and global organisations to collaborate on digital, face to face and hybrid artistic projects. The grants, of up to £75K each, are designed to support artists to make and develop creative artwork with their international peers and to encourage new international partnerships and innovative ways of collaborating.

Organisations based in the UK and 46 eligible countries, including Ireland, are invited to apply. As the fund is designed to support collaboration, all applications must include at least one partner based in an eligible country and at least one UK partner. Applicants will be required to demonstrate genuine international collaboration with long-term ambition, and projects are encouraged to address significant contemporary themes, such as equality and inclusivity, and/or global challenges, such as climate change.

All applicants must submit their application digitally via the application link that will be available on the British Council's website between 15 October and 4 November 2021. Visit the International Collaboration Grants page and find out more including who can apply and how they will be assessed by visiting the FAQs page.

Two external webinars are available for interested applicants. Anyone wishing to attend can follow the links below on the dates/times shown:
