New Connections is the British Council’s Art programme, offering a series of inspirational events that create new connections between top talents from the UK and audiences in Italy. Innovation, Creativity and Excellence – the three values that underpin this programme

We work in collaboration with partners and artists to create events in Music, Literature, Film, Dance, Theatre, Architecture and Design, Visual Arts and the business of Creativity.

New Connections runs in collaboration with partners and artists in Italy and the UK who help create the inspirational events and support emerging talents.

The Cultural Relations Award

The Cultural Relations Award is offered to those partners and artists we recognise as making a particularly valuable contribution in fostering closer cultural relations between the two countries.
