British Council / Creative Scotland > Open Funding Call Scotland – Europe 2020
British Council and Creative Scotland are inviting proposals from artist(s) or organisations working in visual art, theatre, dance, literature, music and cross art form practices to undertake projects with European countries.
The Scottish arts sector has many established connections in Europe and participates in major international platforms such as Classical Next, Venice Biennale or major festivals (Le Festival Interceltique de Lorient and Cannes, etc.). However, considering the changing context within Europe, the aim of this fund is to support artists and arts organisations in Scotland to strengthen or establish new relationships and networks with European peers, undertake research, or pilot initiatives to inform and enable future collaborations to take place
A total fund of £50,000 has been allocated, with an upper limit for individual applications of £10,000. Supported projects must be completed by the end of March 2021. Activity can take place in Scotland and/or in Europe with one or more European country. (The priority countries are Germany, Italy, France, Spain and Ireland. However, proposals which also include other European countries are welcome, including Nordics).
Projects could be manifested in a number of ways such as research and scoping visit, cultural exchange, workshops, delegations, conferences, residencies etc. Applicants must be based in Scotland.
Deadline: 4 March 2020
