British Council's work in arts creates new relationships between artists, organisations and audiences to develop stronger creative sectors around the world.
We work in partnership with the Arts Council of Northern Ireland across a range of creative programmes supporting Northern Ireland artists and arts organisations to engage internationally.
British Council is honoured to be working with our colleagues at the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and the Jaipur Literature Festival to deepen the existing literature connections that we have with India, to welcome authors from India to Northern Ireland and share Indian writing and publishing with our audiences at the inaugural Belfast JLF pop-up in June 2019.
"The Arts Council of Northern Ireland is the main support for arts organisations and artists, distributing public funding to help bring great art within reach of everyone. Northern Ireland is the home of Nobel Laureate poet Seamus Heaney, the film actor Liam Neeson, the internally-acclaimed musicians Barry Douglas and James Galway and the Booker Prize winner Anna Burns. On the weekend of 21-23 June 2019, the largest city Belfast will host an edition of the world-famous Jaipur Literature Festival (JLF@Belfast). The event is organised in partnership with the British Council. We are delighted to have built this relationship with the festival - possibly the largest event of its kind in the world.
We look forward to the many cultural parallels between Ireland and India - borders, languages, gender, nationality - being explored in a partnership of enduring value and importance."
