Following the successful launch of our Go Digital: Sub Saharan Africa-Wales programme, we’re now announcing a new programme to support digital collaborations between artists and art organisations in Wales and Pakistan.
Go Digital: Pakistan-Wales will sit alongside the British Council Pakistan-UK 2022 season: New Perspectives, which will run from March 2022 to August 2022. Pakistan-UK 2022 will combine British Council and wider UK-Pakistan collaborations, with programming from arts, English, education, youth/skills work and sport. It will be a blended format of face-to-face (travel permitting) and digital activity including performances, exhibitions, professional development programmes, art installations, co-productions, residencies and research.
Digital Collaboration Grants
We have always supported international artistic collaboration through our work. In response to increasing restrictions on global travel due to Covid-19, and rising concerns about the sustainability of face-to-face collaborations, we are exploring new ways to foster international connections.
Go Digital will provide professional engagement opportunities for the cultural sectors and for young people in Pakistan and Wales, encouraging collaboration and developing lasting partnerships in the creative sectors. Project teams will devise new virtual ways of working internationally, in turn creating a climate-friendly approach to international collaboration and artistic exchange.
Applications will be via an expression of interest.
We are keen to work with emerging, as well as more established, artists and connections, and projects with links to the Pakistan diaspora and alumni in Wales.
Up to four grants of £8000 will be awarded to project teams in Wales and Pakistan to collaborate on digital creative projects.
