We invite institutions and individuals based in Nepal and the UK to submit proposals for small grants to deliver engaging, creative, and meaningful engagements on gender equality as part of our Culture Responds global programme. 

These grants serve as a crucial resource for actors to access the most relevant channels to apply the transformative power of arts/culture to address current challenges facing women/girls, especially those at the margins of the gender movement, gender minorities and other vulnerable communities. The grants are aimed at providing the support required for the delivery of creative actions that raise awareness and extend the voice/agency of those at the margins of the gender movement in Nepal.

We are offering a number of awards which combine financial and nonfinancial resources. Selected grantees will have mentoring throughout the grant period and also have access to several opportunities to showcase their vision and outputs.  

To apply, begin by downloading the Gender Grants Guidelines, which will provide you with a comprehensive overview of the opportunity. Please make sure to read through this document to understand the eligibility and scope of the support being offered. The guidelines will also assist you in submitting an effective proposal. Accompanying application form is designed to be accessible and will require some preparation. Please use the guide to understand the process and access the application form. 

If you require further guidance, please do not hesitate to contact us at arts@britishcouncil.org.np

Submissions will be appraised by a panel on a rolling basis.

The final date for submitting the form is 30 November 2023, 11:59 PM NPT.
