Northern Ireland on the world stage
This fund invites artists, cultural professionals and organisations to consider where that collaboration could be also enhanced by closer working between England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, and with counterparts from Europe and beyond.
The Four Nations International Fund is a £100,000 pilot fund, launched in 2021, with co-investment from Arts Council England, Arts Council of Northern Ireland, Arts Council Wales/Wales Arts International and Creative Scotland.
New funding for innovative models of international cultural exchange and collaboration was awarded to 38 projects. The projects bring together 82 UK and 48 international partners based in over 24 different countries, from Mexico to Kenya, Barbados to Australia and throughout Europe and USA.
