The British Council announces the launch of the Connections Through Culture (CTC) Grants for artists and cultural institutions, opening new opportunities for research, development and partnerships between the United Kingdom and the international community.
Accepting applications until Oct. 23, the grant is open for cultural organizations in the Philippines and across the Asean region. Up to £10,000 (P700,000) will be awarded for projects highlighting collaboration between the UK and the Philippines, designed to encourage new connections and partnerships across a broad spectrum of art forms. In alignment with British Council’s commitment in responding to global challenges through arts, CTC particularly prioritizes collaborative projects that tackle climate change as well as diversity and inclusion.
CTC is accepting applications for collaborations between the UK and the Philippines, as well as the following countries: Australia, Japan, Indonesia, China, Thailand, Myanmar, Malaysia and New Zealand. Organizations with projects at any stage of development are welcome to apply. Each application must comprise of at least one UK applicant and one applicant from the Philippines with their project proposal timeline ending no later than Oct. 31, 2024.
