Applications for the latest round of the British Council’s Connections Through Culture (CTC) arts grant is now open until Nov 8.
What is this grant?
The programme is a bilateral arts grant designed to seed exciting cultural exchanges between artists and arts organisations.
It also aims to nurture cooperation and relationships between Britain, and for 2020-2021, five South-East Asian countries: Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines.
Connections Through Culture was created in August 2019 and is a first-of-its kind project in this region.
Prior to Covid-19, this would have most likely involved international travel.
However, with travel restricted and uncertain, the CTC grants will be used to develop and strengthen new and existing relationships.
Alongside similar initiatives across East Asia, artists, arts professionals and art group and collective representatives from the five the South-East Asian countries as well as Britain are eligible to apply for the online grants which are valued from £2,500 (RM13,447) to £7,500 (RM40,342).
Grantees from South-East Asia and Britain may use the fund for platforms and conversations to meet with specialists, peers in the field, and other participants based in Britain and in South-East Asia between January to June 2021.
Successful grantees of the 2020-2021 round will be announced in late November 2020.
