The India-Northern Ireland: Connections Through Culture is a new grant scheme by the British Council that supports artistic collaboration and exchange between creative professionals and arts organisations in Northern Ireland and India.
The India-Northern Ireland Connections Through Culture 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.
The grant is designed to provide support to successful applicants for a period of 3 years, where:
- Year 1 is for the R&D for the proposed project.
- Years 2 & 3 would include production and festivals touring.
As part of British Council's Festivals for the Future programme in India, the grant supports artistic collaboration and exchange between creative professionals and arts organisations in Northern Ireland and India.
Individual artists, arts organisations and festivals based in India or Northern Ireland are invited to apply for the grant by submitting co-created project proposals for Year 1.
