About the grant: We are delighted to announce the launch of our Arts Residency Grants Programme.

This fund will offer two to three grants, each worth up to £30,000, to co-developed proposals between Pakistan and UK partners to design and deliver innovative arts residencies that provide early / mid-career artists from Pakistan with opportunities to:

  • research, produce and showcase new work
  • widen the international context for their practice through learning and artistic exchange
  • build new relationships with creative practitioners, communities and institutions
  • access new networks and audiences
  • explore future creative commissions and partnership projects

This is an opportunity to support emerging and transdisciplinary creative practices and to explore new ways of artistic alliance across Pakistan and the UK. Proposals for arts residencies will be Pakistan-led.

Grants will be offered to residencies exploring all art forms: theatre, dance, visual arts, literature, film, music, design, fashion, architecture, craft, tech-art and new media art. Partnerships across disciplines and organisations are encouraged, including new models of exchange between art, research, science and other fields.

Information session: To help respond to some of your questions, we will be hosting a webinar while the call is open: Wednesday, 08 February 2023 at 3.00 pm PKT / 10 am GMT
