In 2019, the British Council launched Festivals for the Future, a multi-year programme aimed at supporting the long-term development of the creative economy of India’s art and culture festivals. The programme’s focus is to provide opportunities for creative expression, exchange and enterprise through trusted partnerships between India and the UK in order to strengthen and support the long-term development of India’s festival sector.

The internship programme is a continuation of British Council’s work with Festival Connections in partnership with Arts & Culture Resources India and Festivals From India. Marking India’s 75th anniversary of Independence, this internship programme will extend through partnerships with the UK arts festivals sector during the 2022 festivals season time-frame.


Equality, Diversity and Inclusion:

Our approach aims to ensure that wherever possible and feasible, equal opportunities are given to all and that people engaging with us are protected against discrimination.

With equal opportunities, we believe in diversity and inclusion as ways of respecting and recognising people of different sexual orientations and gender identities and from varied social, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds. We aim to understand, value, and work constructively to enable fair participation.

The Festival Connection internship project will aim to provide access or opportunities to remove barriers and redress imbalances caused by inequality and unjustified discrimination against individuals who may be part of marginalised communities and minority groups or excluded on the basis of social, economic, or cultural identities or physical and mental disabilities.

We are committed to making sure there is no unjustified discrimination in our process of selection, performance management and other processes.
