THE BRITISH COUNCIL has introduced a new Russia Grant Scheme of up to £5000 for individual UK artists and professionals (eg composers, conductors, performers, librettists, sound artists, event producers) who have an existing interest in or contact with Russia, and who have a strong project idea.

Applications may also be considered from those who have never worked with Russian partners but have project partners in mind or already committed.

The scheme marks the beginning of a Year Of Music between the UK and Russia, which will build on successes of the UK-Russia Year Of Language & Literature in 2016, and Science & Education in 2017. It aims to celebrate the UK and Russia’s rich musical cultures and foster contacts between countries.

The closing date is 21st February 2019.

Visit the British Council website for more details and the application form.
