Artists' International Development Fund

Artists' International Development Fund

The Artists’ International Development Fund
Aims to:

offer artistic and/or market development for artists and creative practitioners
develop a cohort of artists and creative practitioners who have experienced the benefits of international working between the United Kingdom and other countries, and who advocate for it among their peers
increase the amount of international collaboration among artists and/or creative practitioners between the UK and other countries.




You can apply for a minimum of £1,000 up to a maximum of £5,000, not including any personal access costs you might have.

Access costs are any extra costs relating to your own access needs (if you are deaf or disabled or experience learning difficulties, for example) that you will need to pay to help you manage your project. For example, payment for a sign language interpreter to help you manage your project is an access cost.


The Artists' International Development Fund has three rounds of funding each year. You can only make one application to this fund in any 12 month period.

Note that while some organisers may accept applications from all around the world, you may still be required to travel to the host country in order to take part in the later stages of a competition for instance, or you may be required to live there for a period of time to take part in a funded programme (e.g. scholarship, incubator, accelerator).

Multiple host countries may mean that no travel is required.
