British Council is delighted to launch the International Collaboration Grants, a £3.5m programme of grants now available to support UK and overseas organisations to collaborate internationally. The International Collaboration Grants support UK and international organisations to work together on digital, face-to-face, and/or hybrid artistic projects. In Taiwan, we are collaborating with the National Culture and Arts Foundation (NCAF) to develop exciting cultural collaborations between UK and Taiwan arts organisations.

The grants are designed to support artists to make and develop creative artwork with their international peers and encourage new international partnerships and innovative ways of collaborating. Grants of £5k to 75k are available now to UK and international organisations. Applications must demonstrate genuine international collaboration and an explicit benefit to individual artists and international partners. Projects can address any subject or theme – but in Taiwan, we particularly invite collaborations that focus on gender, race, ethnicity, disability, inclusion, ageing and other areas of diversity.

  • Grant projects should be completed by 31 March 2023.
