Connections through Culture Museums Project

Connections through Culture is an initiative by the British Council which aims to build lasting relationships between cultural organisations, museums and heritage organisations in the UK and India. As part of the India-UK: Connections through Culture programme, the British Council is offering travel grants for trips to India and is inviting applications from non-national museums in the UK. The aim of the travel grant scheme is to enable non-national museums in the UK to build and develop institutional links, to share skills and to create and develop joint projects and exhibitions.  

Opportunities are available for grantees to work with cultural institutions, museums and heritage organisations. In addition to this, there are two large-scale international platforms for the Visual Arts in India in 2014-2015.


The aim of the scheme is to enable UK non-national museums to build and develop institutional links, to share skills and to create joint projects or exhibitions with museums in India

What will the grant cover?

Each grant is sufficient to cover the total cost of a week-long visit to India.

Who can apply
