UK–Viet Nam Season 2023

The British Council is calling for applications from organisations in the arts, creative industries and higher education, for their UK–Viet Nam Collaboration Grants, to take place during the UK–Viet Nam Season from June to December 2023.

Marking 50 years of UK–Vietnamese diplomatic relations, and 30 years of the British Council’s presence in Viet Nam, the Season will ignite new collaborations that celebrate the best of UK–Vietnamese partnerships and strengthen the connections between the people of the UK and Viet Nam.

The Season will bring together artists, universities, and civil society leaders around the themes of “Climate and the Environment” and “Shared Heritage”.

The grants are worth up to 50,000 GBP. The British Council are looking for innovative partnerships and co-created projects that reflect on the past, present, and future relationship. 

Project proposals should be collaboratively developed and delivered by at least one UK-based organisation and at least one organisation based in Viet Nam. 

Type of projects the British Council is looking for

  • Thought-provoking public engagement events that will appeal to general audiences, such as conferences, symposia, panel discussions, and talks
  • Small, medium, and large-scale artistic performances, exhibitions, interactive installations, and other cultural events
  • New and creative ways of designing and offering professional development and network building opportunities for artists, creatives, academics and researchers, such as residencies, workshops, open studios, open labs, and other co-creation opportunities
  • Interactive activities which will attract and inspire younger audiences through innovative use of digital technologies and ICT, such as Augmented Reality (AR) or Virtual Reality (VR)
