Our International Collaboration Grants are now open for the second time. This £1 million grant programme supports the creation of new cultural collaborations between UK arts sectors and their peers around the world.

Our International Collaboration Grants encourage new international partnerships, providing funding to enable organisations to make and develop creative artwork with their international peers and helping individual artists find innovative ways of collaborating. 

The International Collaboration Grants available range between £25,000 and £75,000 and are now available.  

Applications must demonstrate genuine international collaboration and an explicit benefit to individual artists and international partners. Projects can address any theme and we ask applicants to share their approach to diversity, inclusion and environmental sustainability in the delivery of their project.
