Yes, my friend, there is! You can apply for the British Council’s 2021 Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) Arts Cultural Exchange, as the Call is now open.
This funding opportunity will provide grants to cultural organizations, festivals, artists, and creative between SSA’s countries and the UK to create art, build networks, collaborate, develop markets, and share artists’ work with audiences.
The British Council has always supported international collaboration through their work in arts and culture, but as travel becomes more challenging due to the Covid-19 pandemic and with ongoing questions about the sustainability of international travel in the light of the climate crisis, they’re now looking to facilitate that collaboration digitally.
Their new Cultural Exchange Open Call, building on previous open calls related to mobility, exchange and art making launches on 26 July 2021, supports organisations and individuals in SSA and the UK to develop new ways of working internationally – allowing cultural exchange to flourish despite restrictions on global movement.
They will prioritise projects which contribute to new narratives between countries of SSA and the UK. By this they mean projects that highlight / amplify less heard stories and perspectives of SSA in the UK and the UK in SSA.
The deadline for submitting the is 08-Sep-21
