British Council Festival Travel Grants 2024 to China

The British Council is calling for applications for their Festival Travel Grants 2024 from representatives of UK arts festivals who want to attend an artistic festival in mainland China.

The grant will enable a representative from a UK festival to visit either a festival or festivals in mainland China. Through attending the festival, participants will gain a better understanding of the cultural landscape in mainland China, and make connections which will benefit their festival in the UK.


Representatives from UK arts festivals are eligible to apply. The representative does not need to be a staff member of the organisation, but the organisation will need to verify that they are in a position to represent the festival.

Representatives from UK festivals must have the ability to support future collaborative projects, they do not need to be the artistic director but will need to demonstrate (e.g. through a letter confirming support from the festival Director) that they have the authority to develop projects.

Grant Amount

Grants will be offered of up to 3,000 GBP. Each festival is only eligible to receive one grant per year and it is expected that there will be five grants available in round two.
