MANILA, PHILIPPINES — The British Council has launched the Connections Through Culture (CTC) Grants for artists and cultural institutions, opening new opportunities for research, development, and partnerships between the UK and the international community.

Accepting applications until October 23, the grant is open for cultural organizations in the Philippines and across the ASEAN region. Up to £10,000 (PHP700,000) will be awarded for projects highlighting collaboration between the UK and the Philippines, designed to encourage new connections and partnerships across a broad spectrum of artforms. In alignment with the British Council’s commitment to responding to global challenges through arts, CTC particularly prioritizes collaborative projects that tackle Climate Change as well as Diversity and Inclusion.

CTC is accepting applications for collaborations between the UK and the Philippines, as well as the following East Asian countries: Australia, Japan, Indonesia, mainland China, Thailand, Myanmar, Malaysia, and New Zealand. Organizations with projects at any stage of development are welcome to apply. Each application must comprise at least one UK applicant and one applicant from the Philippines with their project proposal timeline ending no later than October 31, 2024.


Lotus Postrado, Country Director at the British Council in the Philippines, said, “The Connections Through Culture Grant program supports exciting new arts and culture projects that continue to build international links with the UK.”

“These grants will support artists and organizations in sharing ideas, exploring new ways of working, and reaching new audiences. In our 45 years in the Philippines, we have seen the exceptional talents of Filipinos and we look forward to supporting them through this grant. We are excited to watch their journey and we hope that their collaborations will inspire and engage our communities.”

The grants are an extension of the British Council’s ongoing efforts to build connections, understanding, and trust between people in the UK and overseas through the arts and creative industries. Applications close on October 23. For more information, click here.
