Working with US

The British Council in Scotland identifies and acts upon opportunities for Scottish expertise in the arts and creative industries to contribute to the British Council’s cultural relations mission.

Working with our international colleagues and partners, our role is to identify appropriate artists and work. We engage with a wide variety of artists who are generally invited to participate in our projects. Who we choose to work with is based primarily on the identification of need and opportunity overseas - for example, work which meets our cultural relations brief and is tailored to the intended audience.

We run a small number of formal schemes offering support and funding for artists such as Connections through Culture.

Do you have a list of ‘approved artists’?

No. We are always looking out for new creative talent and exciting fresh work. We keep up-to-date with new developments across all art forms and showcase the best of Scotland’s contemporary artists to international professionals.
