Climate change and COP26 – Open call for creative commissions

Overview

The British Council is inviting applications for creative commissions that bring together art, science and digital technology and offer innovative responses to climate change. The commissions will be part of the cultural programme in the build up to the United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26), which the UK is hosting in Glasgow in November 2021. 

We are inviting collaborative applications from individuals and organisations in the UK with partners from eligible countries and states overseas (including China). 

You can apply for up to £50,000 to realise your creative idea and we are looking to support up to 20 projects. We want these commissions to stimulate truly global conversations, bringing people from different countries, cultures and communities together to understand each other’s perspectives and to work together on creative responses and solutions to climate change.

Application deadline is December 13, 2020.
