British Council New Zealand connects aspirational young New Zealanders with contemporary UK, across the spheres of arts, creative industries, science and education. We work with local and international partners to showcase excellence, innovation and creativity.
We're interested in creating interesting, new projects that meet the following criteria:
- Strong UK focus
- Opportunity for British Council to partner in the development
- Strong media or audience reach.
Please be aware, however, that we work on a two-year planning cycle, and our budgets are often committed far in advance.
British Council administers a range of awards and professional development opportunities. We do not give grants or provide ad hoc funding for UK study.
British Council is currently in 110 countries and territories around the world. Our programmes reach over 20 million people, enabling them to experience the UK's creativity, and discuss issues that affect our shared global future.
British Council is a registered charity and is a non-departmental public body. We receive a grant from the British Government. Our patron is Her Majesty The Queen and our Vice-Patron is His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales.
