The Korea Foundation and the British Council are inviting applications for a Creative Commission that bring together art, science and digital technology and offer innovative responses to climate change. The commission will be part of the cultural programme in the build up to the 2021 P4G (Partnering for Green Growth and Global Goal 2030) Seoul Summit, which was hosted by Republic of Korea and the United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26), which the UK is hosting in Glasgow in November 2021. 

We are inviting joint applications from individuals and organisations in the UK and Korea. We are looking to support one project and you can apply for up to ₩70,000,000 to realise your creative idea. We want this commission to stimulate conversations between the two countries and even beyond, bringing people from different countries, cultures and communities together to understand each other’s perspectives and to work together on creative responses and solutions to climate change. 

Please read full details about the call and who can apply in the Briefing document. For more detailed information, please also see responses to frequently asked questions.

This call is open for applications until GMT 10.00 (KST 18.00) Friday 2 July 2021.
