Expressions of Interest (EOI) are now open for alumni of the British Council ACCELERATE Leadership Program to apply for up to $5,000 in seed funding to generate international collaborations. Collaborative projects or activities to be considered could be based either in Australia or internationally and we encourage you to be flexible, simple and open to new ideas. Projects must be delivered between 1 October 2016 and 31 December 2017.
We will accept submissions up to 16 June 2017 or until the funding runs out. You can submit an EOI at any time between now and the closing date. The purpose of this fund is to:
- Generate and support ideas for international collaboration between ACCELERATE alumni and international artists and/or arts organisations.
- Build on the ACCELERATE UK trip and Yirama Yangga-na, the first alumni gathering in Wollongong.
- Encourage idea exploration for the next gathering at the International Indigenous Arts Festival Yirramboi in May 2017.
- Extend professional development of ACCELERATE alumni.
This opportunity is only available to the alumni of the ACCELERATE Leadership Program including the 2016 participants.
International collaboration should either be included in this activity or have the potential to be included in future activity. Collaborations can include Australian organisations as partners alongside international collaborators.
Only one application per participant.
Please check the general eligibility requirements on the Australia Council website.
