Here’s some news of funding that may benefit digital storytellers in the UK. A pilot grant scheme for Connections though Culture: India – UK is now open and arts producers or representatives from an arts organisations in the UK are eligible to apply.
Connections through Culture is the British Council’s new programme for collaborative exchanges between the UK and India in the arts, aimed at generating long-term partnerships between arts organisations and producers in the UK and their counterparts in India. The funding may be for bespoke visits, development support and showcasing collaborative work.
There’s a link on the page to the new Connections through Culture website with a how-to guide to working in India. Although the web page says the closing date is Monday 11 January, the email I just received from British Council’s Louise Wright says the deadline’s extended until 8 March 2010.
