British Council Residency Programme at FLORA

The British Council will support two British artists for the academic year 2017,  from February to December 2017.

Artists born in Northern Ireland, Wales, Scotland or England are invited to participate, as well as artists who have been residents of any of the UK regions for at least 10 years and identify as British.

The application to the residency is open from October 3 to November 10, 2016.

The name of the selected artist will be published on November 30, 2016.

The residency will start in February 2017 and last until December 2017.

Many of the talks, seminars and studio visits will be done in Spanish, so a working knowledge of the language is preferable.

The selected artist must get the appropriate visa to stay in Colombia for one year and a health insurance as well. British Council and FLORA will provide a letter confirming his or her acceptance to the programme.

The residency programme INCLUDES:

  • A studio with utilities included from February to December 2017.
  • Participation in the Escuela FLORA independent study programme.
  • A monthly allowance for housing, transportation and per diems of $ 1.400.000 COP for (10) ten months.

The residency program DOES NOT include:

  • Airline tickets to Bogotá and back to the UK
  • Honorarium
  • Production budget

Arts Council England | Artists’ International Development Fund

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.
