Apply for Council International Collaboration Grants


    British Council is delighted to launch the International Collaboration Grants, a £3.5m programme of grants now available to support the UK and overseas organisations to collaborate internationally.

    During the pandemic, we supported organisations to collaborate internationally via digital means through the Digital Collaboration Fund.

    Building on the success of the pilot fund, we are now launching International Collaboration Grants to support the UK and international organisations to work together 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 international partnerships and innovative ways of collaborating.

    Small grants of £5-20k and large grants of £20-75k are available now to the UK and international organisations.
