Artists’ international development fund opens for applications

A joint three-year programme between the British Council and Arts Council England which will support individual artists based in England to work internationallyis now open for applications. The Artists’ international development fund will provide grants of between £1,000 to £5,000 for artists to travel, explore and collaborate internationally while carrying out professional projects.   

The £750,000 fund aims to support artists who have carried out little or no work internationally, and is designed to help artists build on their domestic success and develop markets and audiences overseas for their work. 

Arts Council England and the British Council are each providing half of the total funding available. All projects must include one or two periods spent working abroad by the artist.

There are three funding rounds in each financial year the programme will run. The deadline for applications to be received for the first funding round this year is 31 May 2012. The fund will be managed by the Arts Council. Successful applicants will be chosen jointly by Arts Council England and the British Council. The grants are to be used towards covering travel costs, daily needs, some material costs, and accommodation.
