30 November 2023

Are you an artist from Bradford, UK or an international artist seeking to learn how to take your work to global audiences and make new creative connections with artists worldwide?

Bradford Producing Hub and Bradford 2025 present an exciting International Artist Exchange programme to connect artists from the Bradford district with those from across the world.

As we embark on the journey to become the UK City of Culture, 2025 – we’re offering a unique opportunity for up to 15 Bradford artists and 15 international artists at any stage of their career. Our International Artist Exchange programme will prepare artists to take their work to new global audiences for the first time and provide and nurture new international artistic collaborations.


About the programme

This programme will take place between December 2023 and March 2024. We’ve assembled a team of skilled facilitators with extensive experience in delivering outstanding arts and performance on a global scale. With their expertise, this programme promises to be an enriching, relevant, and inclusive experience for artists from a range of art forms, particularly those from a performance and live art background.


What will I get out of the programme?

Through this programme, it is our aim that artists will:

  • be creatively inspired
  • forge global connections with fellow creatives and gain insights into their work, values, and processes
  • find out about the different ways of working and the artistic environments across the world
  • explore avenues for potential international collaborations and learn how to initiate them
  • gain insight into the opportunities and challenges of working outside your home country
  • start thinking about international touring and the things you need to consider should you choose to incorporate it into your practice

Though this programme is open to artists from all disciplines, there will be a focus on performance and live arts in some of the course content. This exchange will therefore be most relevant to artists interested in international partnership working as well as presenting and touring work around the world

Join us for our online info session on Tuesday 21 November. To book a place and find out more about the programme head to our website.
