Free Enquiry Service


Our free enquiry service, provided on behalf of Arts Council England, is available to UK-based practitioners and arts organisations undertaking international cultural activity (priority is given to those based in England). We can direct enquirers and provide details on

  • Sources of funding
  • Overseas residencies, bursaries and fellowships
  • relevant overseas contacts (including networks, cultural ministries etc)
  • touring, working and studying overseas
  • international cultural policy

The service also acts as a conduit for overseas individuals and organisations seeking to make contact in the UK.

Our dedicated enquiry line is open Monday to Friday from 10am-1pm and 2pm-5pm:
020 7403 7001

However you can also email us at: [email protected]

As all our responses are tailored directly to individual enquirers’ needs an enquiry may take up to 10 working days to process (straight forward requests may be dealt with directly).
