Open Calls for UK-Taiwan Connections Through Culture Online Grants 2020-2021

OPEN CALL | UK x Taiwan grants

British Council in Taiwan launched the “Connections through Culture” Grants in 2019. This programme aims to develop exciting cultural collaborations between artists and arts organisations, also to support long-lasting relationships between Taiwan and the UK. The “Connections through Culture” Grants is organised by British Council in Taiwan with supports from the National Culture and Arts Foundation.

Prior to Covid-19, funding was provided for international travel to further face-to-face discussions needed to develop projects beyond initial expressions of interest between two partners. However, with current travel restrictions and continued uncertainty, the 2020-2021 grants are now used to support online collaboration projects between Taiwan and the UK.

Programme Details:
(1) Collaboration Grants are offered to support online projects between Taiwan and the UK. Value of each grant is set at £2,500 (or equivalent monetary value in Taiwan Dollars) per project.
(2) The grant should be used to develop and strengthen new and existing relationships between the UK and Taiwan for new digital/online networking and art and cultural projects.
(3) Grants are offered to artists / organisations working in the following areas including drama, dance, visual arts, literature, film, music, architecture, design, and fashion.
