Through brokering connections and offering travel grants, CtC has enabled over 370 creative and cultural professionals to see one another's work, exchange skills and co-develop projects.

CtC is designed to be agile, responding to changing sector needs and the wider socio-economic context within the UK and China, and encouraging new collaborations on sustainability, inclusion and gender equality.

In respond to increasing restrictions on global travel due to Covid-19, and rising concerns about the sustainability of face-to-face collaborations, we are continuing our UK-China Digital CtC initiated in 2020, to facilitate online networking and exchange between artists and professionals from arts and cultural organisations in China and the UK.

Although the opportunities are available to all UK artists, Connections through Culture receives additional specific support from the Scottish government for projects with a Scottish connection.
