Arts Council England and the British Council are today announcing the 20 artists awarded funding to support development of their work internationally. At the same time we publish a video and case studies demonstrating our support for exceptionally talented international artists entering the UK through the Tier 1 visa scheme.
You can download a full list of the 20 artists awarded funding through the fourth round of the Artists' international development fund. The £750,000 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.
The successful applicants announced today include:
Applications for future funding rounds open in mid-August. Find out more on our Artists' international pages.
Today we also publish a video and case studies illustrating our support for exceptionally talented artists and creative professionals entering the UK through the Tier 1 visa scheme.
The visas are available for exceptionally talented artists who are internationally recognised in their field, benefiting both the work of the artists and the cultural scene in the UK. The Arts Council assesses applications for the visas on behalf of the Home Office.
