British Council Croatia
The British Council Croatia works to build trust and to create opportunities for people from the UK and Croatia, as it focuses on developing skills that contribute to the economic growth and development of an open and creative society. The British Council's main goal is to build bridges of trust and understanding among people. As the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities, the Council attempts to deliver innovative, high-quality events and develop collaborations with artists and cultural institutions.
Through our projects, the Council also promotes inclusive design in Croatia, focusing on creating accessible products and services that can be used broadly. This successful partnership was developed with the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design, the Royal College of Art, the Croatian Designers Association and the School of Design, University of Zagreb. Its education project 'Letter to a Friend' has also linked professional musicians and students from general education and music schools in co-creating a new musical piece through a series of workshops.
