How we work

All our projects are carefully co-developed by Saada El-Akhrass, the Arts manager in Canada, along with our Canadian and UK partners, using the British Council's unique network of global resources. 

While our Canada team nurtures connections with Canadian organizations, our UK team nurtures links with UK organizations and communities. We are constantly on the lookout and interested in hearing about imaginative and innovative projects. The following list corresponds to our currents themes and ideas, which is constantly evolving:

  • accessibility in the arts
  • social inclusion
  • arts and disabilities
  • the role of digital technologies in our societies

Our global work in the arts

Arts is a cornerstone of the British Council’s mission to create a friendly knowledge and understanding between the people of the UK and the wider world. We strive to find new ways of connecting with and understanding each other through the arts, in order to develop stronger creative sectors around the world that are better connected with the UK.
