Five projects have successfully secured funding through the India-Northern Ireland: Connections Through Culture grant scheme.
This new open call by the British Council supports artistic collaboration and exchange between creative professionals and arts organisations in Northern Ireland and India. The grants are for Northern Ireland artists, arts organisations and festivals and will enable development of cross-cultural practice and new artistic work with scope to tour to arts festivals in India over the longer-term.
Designed to provide support to successful applicants for a period of three years, year one is for research and development, while years two and three will include production and festivals touring. Due to Covid-19, the projects are all digital in year one, but the ambition is to have some face-to-face activity.
