Opportunities

We work to provide a series of unique opportunities for UK-based design professionals, particularly to those who wish to develop their research and skills overseas. These range from small one-off funds and competitions, ongoing annual grant and residency programmes, to larger British Council development funds for artists and designers.

We also feature other funding announcements and opportunities from our partners and the wider design sector via the blog.
