Monday, July 8, 2019   (0 Comments)

British Council and Arts Council of England launched GENERATE, a joint program for new UK-US Arts collaboration. GENERATE provides opportunities for US and UK theatre, dance, live and performance art producers, presenters, and curators to develop a transatlantic network for collaborative work and long-term relationships. Up to six US and six UK  attendees will have access to a series of unique networking and collaborative opportunities. The twelve successful applicants will:

  • Meet with your network twice over a twelve-month period: during the Fierce! Festival in Birmingham, England, and at the Fusebox Festival in Austin, Texas. 
  • Be eligible to apply for an additional travel grant to attend a festival of your choice in the UK or US.
  • Have access to the festivals’ curatorial teams for networking/mentorship.
  • Increase your international engagement by building relationships with other producers, presenters, and curators in the UK and US.
  • Receive economy flights, accommodations, festival fees, and a small stipend to offset additional costs. 

Applications are accepted through August 7, 2019. Learn more about GENERATE on the British Council's website.
