Arts Council England and the British Council today announce 22 new artists based in England who will be supported to work internationally.
This is the third of three rounds of funding for this financial year. Artists can still apply for funding for international projects in the fourth round, which is open for applications until 3 May 2013.
The £750,000 Artists international development fund aims to support artists who have carried out little or no work internationally, and is designed to help artists build on their domestic success and develop markets and audiences overseas for their work.
All successful projects include one or two periods spent working abroad by the artist. The grants are to be used towards covering travel, accommodation, some material costs and daily needs.
Today's announcement offers grants of between £1,000 and £5,000 to artists to travel, explore and build international partnerships through carrying out projects in 17 different countries in artforms ranging from visual arts, literature and music to theatre, dance and combined arts.
Successful artists from this round include:

Arts Council England and the British Council are each providing half of the total funding available for the Artists international fund, which is managed by the Arts Council. Successful applicants are chosen jointly by Arts Council England and the British Council.
