A special call for projects to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the British Council’s presence in Canada has now been opened. In celebration of this anniversary and the special relationship between Quebec and the UK, the Quebec Government and the British Council are pleased to invite artists, directors, authors, and other cultural workers to submit an application for financial support to carry out a research trip between Quebec and the UK in 2019 and 2020.
This trip would aim to support and encourage new cultural dialogues leading to better mutual understanding between the two societies. In order to be considered, a proposed trip must start at the earliest on January 1, 2020 and end by December 31, 2020, and target at least one British and one Quebec partner. The deadline for applications is September 20, 2019.
It should be noted that because of the special nature of this call for proposals, project proposals submitted by British organisations do not need to have a Quebec partner submit a joint proposal to the Quebec government.
Quebec-based organisations are also welcomed to apply by following the link to the Ministère des relations internationales du Québec’s website. Please note that this special 60th anniversary celebration fund does not replace the regular biannual QC/UK Connections call for projects. The next edition of which will be launched in the spring of 2020.
For more information, full list of criteria and to complete the application form, please go to the British Council website.
