British Council opportunity: Open call for BAME practitioners looking to build international links

19 September 2017

As part of the British Councils mission to represent the UK in all its diversity, the British Council is offering bursaries for BAME (black, Asian or minority ethnic) artists and producers to attend IETM Brussels from 23—26 November 2017. IETM is a network of over five hundred performing arts organisations and individuals working in contemporary performance in Europe and all over the world. 

IETM Brussels 2017 will look at populism and exclusion — focusing on how the arts sector can counter populist rhetoric and break down an 'us against them' narrative. The British Council is an associate member of IETM and there will be friendly faces from our Theatre and Dance team on hand for the successful participants. We will provide support, make introductions, steer the group through events and help everyone to make the most of the experience.

To be considered for a bursary, eligible candidates should complete this short application form by the deadline on 25 September 2017. Applications will be accepted from UK based BAME artists or producers working in the performing arts.

Previous applicants are welcome to apply again.
