The Artists’ international development fund is a jointly funded programme between the British Council and Arts Council England. This programme supports the shared objectives of the British Council and Arts Council England.
The Artists’ international development fund offers early stage development opportunities for individual freelance and self-employed artists and/or creative practitioners (including, for example: producers, curators, publishers, editors, translators, choreographers) based in England to spend time building links with artists, organisations and/or creative practitioners in another country.
Individual applicants who are employed by arts and culture organisations are now eligible to apply; a limited number of awards will be made to individual applicants working for organisations. However, our ambition to achieve a success rate of not less than 30% for individual freelance and self-employed artists and/or creative practitioners will be maintained.
