Link to Apply: UK / POLAND Arts scoping grants | British Council Poland

Are you an arts and cultural organisation, large or small, in either the UK or Poland? Do you have a clear proposed project, shared between two organisations in both countries?

If the answer is yes, you can apply for the British Council’s scoping grants in order to start developing potential activity.

The grants are part of the preparations for the British Council’s UK/Poland season in 2025 and the British Council is offering grants of £2,500 to start conversations and establish partnerships.  

The grants are primarily for travel-related costs (flights, train, accommodation). To support travel related costs for representatives of UK and Polish organisations in the arts and creative industries to undertake scoping visits to each other’s country.

The British Council are keen to support the creation of new work, new collaborations, and innovative activity. 

All applicants should have a clear project in mind which would then be collaboratively developed through this exchange.

The project must be for ultimate presentation in Poland, or in Poland and UK, but not UK only.

In late 2023 and 2024 the British Council are hoping to offer additional funding to support the strongest collaborations, those which best meet the aims of the Season.

Projects should be delivered by at least one UK-based organization and at least one organisation based in Poland. Only one of the two organizations can apply for the grant.

There are a total of 25 grants available this year. The travel should take place between February and May 2023.  

Deadline for applications – 4 January 2023
