Calls For Submission: International Collaboration Grants 2024

The British Council International Collaboration Grants is calling for submissions for its second round. The  £1 million grants programme fosters cultural exchanges and partnerships between UK artists, arts professionals, and organizations with their counterparts across the globe. These International Collaboration Grants aim to facilitate the creation of innovative artistic endeavors while strengthening international ties within the creative community.

At the heart of the International Collaboration Grants 2024 is the encouragement of bilateral and multilateral partnerships. With funding ranging from £25,000 to £75,000, this project aims to empower organizations and individual artists to embark on ambitious projects, pushing the boundaries of creativity and cultural exchange.

These grants provide an opportunity for participants to explore new avenues, develop creative artworks, and foster meaningful connections with their international peers. Whether it’s exploring common themes or tackling global challenges, our grants support projects that demonstrate genuine collaboration and offer tangible benefits to all involved parties.
