The British Council sees mobility as movement, but also as building relationships and creating connections. 

They believe mobility is both travelling across national borders and also collaborating with new communities that are right around your corner.

Successful applicants will be expected to share their travel experience through the creation and distribution of a 3 minute video. 

The Mobility East Africa Travel Grant is co-produced by the British Council’s East Africa Arts programme, Culture and Development East Africa CDEA plus anonymous donors.
