Five Cultural Projects Everyone Should Know About

Anna Karnaukh, Senior Arts Manager at the British Council in Ukraine named the five international cultural projects of the British Council, which all representatives of the cultural sector should know about.

Selector Radio show – a weekly update on the best emerging music from the UK, curated in our London office. Anybody can listen to it online. Besides the original version, there are local versions in more than 40 countries.

The Unlimited disability arts programme was born as the result of the Cultural Olympiad 2012 in London and then it grew into a permanent programme across different art forms.

The International Fashion Showcase (IFS) – a platform for emerging fashion designers to exhibit their work during London Fashion Week. Bringing cutting-edge fashion design to London from around the globe, IFS invites everyone to explore different cultures and consider current world issues through fashion.

The British Council owns an outstanding visual arts collection. Some of the items are touring globally (last year’s Grayson Perry exhibition in Kyiv is one example). We look forward to bringing more of this collection to Ukraine, but meanwhile it is available online, so anybody can enjoy it!

And we highly recommend people to subscribe to the British Council Arts weekly newsletter, this is a well-curated selection of updates and articles on the UK arts scene.
