In 2020 we held open call out to organisations and individuals based in the UK to submit project proposals for inclusion in the Season which align to our theme, season dates, and locations. 

Grant recipients

Grant support has been allocated to work by the following UK-based artists and organisations in partnership with Australian organisations. 

This number of grants would not have been possible without generous philanthropic support from members of the Board of Patrons

Further information about the projects will be shared later in 2021. 


The application process was open from 7 July to 17 August 2020. Applicants were notified nine (9) weeks after the closing date. 

Applications for grants were shortlisted by British Council specialist arts staff. External advisors then recommend grant recipients from the shortlisted projects.
