Farnham Maltings and Orient Productions are thrilled to announce that, after the success of the first round of UK-Egypt creative partnerships in 2022, we are excited to launch the second round.

UK-Egypt artistic partners are invited to apply for funding of up to £7,500 GBP / 280,000 EGP to explore how they can exchange creative ideas, knowledge and practice, and develop new performance work without meeting in person.

The fund is open to Egyptian and UK based individual artists, collectives, independent companies and organisations of theatre and dance. Cross art form collaborations are also welcomed.

Deadline to apply: 15 May 2023
