China-UK Connections through Culture - development grants
The grant will enable one member of staff from your organisation to visit counterparts in China for one or more of the following reasons:
- Face-to-face project development with your Chinese partner organisation(s), e.g. contractual negotiations
- Seeing and evaluating the work of your Chinese partner organisation(s)
- Developing staff skills needed to realise your project through shadowing counterparts in your Chinese partner organisation(s)
Please note you will need to make your own travel, visa and insurance arrangements.
Connections through Culture aims to develop institutional links and therefore individual artists are not eligible to apply for a development grant. Funding bodies and for-profit companies are also ineligible. Connections through Culture does not support academic links.
Any non-profit UK cultural organisation which is a member of Connections through Culture and is in the process of developing an arts project with a CtC registered counterpart in China which will result in an exhibition, performance or public event held in China demonstrating the best of UK arts and creativity. We expect discussions with the partner to have moved beyond preliminary expressions of interest and the initial research stage. These grants are targeted at organisations rather than individual artists but artist collectives and support organisations may apply.
Deadline for applications is Sunday 10 June 2012 for visits taking place between August 2012 and January 2013. Applicants will be notified on Monday 16 July 2012.
