Connections Through Culture: India-Wales is a new grant scheme by the British Council supported by Wales Arts International and Arts Council Wales to develop cross-cultural creative collaborations between India and Wales.
The grant is designed to provide support to individual artists, arts organisations and festivals based in India or Wales to co-create new artistic work and share practice over a period of 3 years, where:
- Year 1 is for the R&D for the proposed project.
- Years 2 & 3 would include production and festivals touring.
As part of British Council's Festivals for the Future programme in India, the grant supports artistic collaboration and exchange between creative professionals and arts organisations in Wales and India, and enables development of cross-cultural practice and new artistic work with scope to tour to arts festivals in India and Wales over the longer-term.
