OPPORTUNITY: UK-China Connections Through Culture

OPPORTUNITY: UK-China Connections Through Culture

3 January 2017
by Monique Ricketts

The final round of 2016-17 Connections through Culture Grant is now open for applications until 2 February 2017.

Running for nearly a decade, Connections through Culture is a long-term programme led by British Council China to develop exciting cultural collaborations between artists and arts organisations, supporting long-lasting relationships between China and the UK.

The programme offers support, information, advice, networking opportunities and development grants of £2,500 to artists and arts organisations in China and the UK.

China and the UK both have a rich cultural heritage. Artists and arts organisations in both countries can benefit from the inspiration gained from exchanging ideas and sharing their cultural history.

Although the grants are available to all UK artists, Connections through Culture receives additional specific support from the Scottish government for projects with a Scottish connection.

Deadline for applications is 2 February 2017.

For more information on eligibility, details of the grant, and how to apply visit the British Council China website here.
