New application round now open for the Artists' International Development Fund (AIDF)

The AIDF exists to facilitate international collaboration among artists and creative practitioners between the UK and other countries and is funded jointly by Arts Council England and the British Council.

Intended as a launchpad for the development of markets and audiences overseas, the fund advocates freelance and self-employed artists to broaden their horizons through work, travel and exploration by collaborating on a professional project, while also giving audiences the chance to enjoy talent from around the world. 

Applicants should be based in England, in the early stages of career development and able to demonstrate interest generated within a host country (see guidelines). 

For this round only (12) the Arts Council will be giving some priority to applications proposing visits to South Korea. 

The deadline for applications for this round (12) is 5 PM Wednesday 13 April 2016.

Activities must start after - Wednesday 1 June 2016

Activities must end before - Thursday 1 June 2017

Creative producers, curators, editors, design writers, artists, as well as architects, fashion designers and designers can apply here.

Those who previously applied to round 9, 10, 11 cannot apply.
