British Council Digital Collaboration Fund

Aims/priorities: The Digital Collaboration Fund aims to address the challenge of continuing to support international artistic collaboration during COVID-19 restrictions.

Through a series of grants, this fund will support organisations to devise new virtual ways of working internationally, in turn creating a climate-friendly approach to international collaboration and artistic exchange.

There are three strands available under this programme:

Forever Manchester - Connecting Communities at Christmas

Aims/priorities:  Forever Manchester is helping community groups across Greater Manchester keep in touch and bring that Christmas spirit to life.  Forever Manchester has always believed that connected communities make stronger, happier communities and love any activity that brings people together. That’s why, every summer and Christmas for the last few years, they’ve awarded funds so that people can host Get Togethers in their communities.  This year, this isn’t possible – at least not in the way that may have been anticipated – but community is needed now more than ever.

Aims/priorities:  GMCVO are managing the grants process which is funded by Greater Manchester Moving (with money from Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership).  The grants will be awarded to ideas to get more people in Greater Manchester walking while adhering to government social distancing restrictions.
