The British Council organises study visits and invites selected Irish artists and art professionals to partake in delegate opportunities at various UK festivals and showcases.
We provide first-hand information about recent artistic trends and developments in the UK, and facilitate networking opportunities with UK artists, curators, producers, policy makers, venues, and festival organisers.
We encourage cooperation between British and Irish arts professionals and, in doing so, create opportunities to see and hear new British work in Ireland.
UK festivals and programmes to which we have invited Irish delegates so far include:
- Unlimited festival
- Celtic Connections
- Outburst Queer Arts Festival
- Unboxed Festival
- CoMuseum International Conference
- Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival
- Edinburgh Showcase
- The Great Escape
