UK/AU Season Alumni Digital Collaboration Grants
November 8, 2021 - November 14, 2021
UK/AU Season Alumni Digital Collaboration Grant
This grant enables individuals from the UK and Australia who are alumni of British Council Australia programmes or delegations to collaborate digitally with artists/companies from the other country on international projects. This programme aims to develop exciting cultural collaborations between arts and creative practitioners, and to support long-lasting relationships between Australia and the UK.
Why a digital collaboration grant?
We have always supported international artistic collaboration through our work. In response to increasing restrictions on global travel due to Covid-19, and rising concerns about the sustainability of face-to-face collaborations, we are now looking for new ways to foster these international connections.
The UK/AU Season Alumni Digital Collaboration Grant aims to address this challenge, and to reanimate conversations and collaborations which may have been paused due to the pandemic. Through a series of grants, we are supporting pairs of individuals in the UK and Australia to devise new virtual ways of working internationally, in turn creating a climate-friendly approach to international collaboration and artistic exchange.
