Applying for Funding

Apply online for the International Opportunities Fund

Organisations and individual artists based in Wales can now apply online for the International Opportunities Fund, which will make the process of requesting support simpler.

Your first step will be to complete the registration form, which will register you with Arts Council of Wales and Wales Arts International. Once you have registered, each time you would like to apply to the International Opportunities Fund you will be taken through a checklist to ensure that you and your proposed activity are eligible for support. You will then be able to start your online application, or you will be given further information.
