Open Call: Human-Nature Delegation to Malaysia/Borneo

The British Council Malaysia are calling for seven UK artists, arts organisation representatives, arts tech creatives, producers or curators to be part of a delegation visiting Kuala Lumpur, Sabah and Sarawak (Borneo States) over a 10 day period in March 2024.

About this opportunity:

The British Council has launched the new global programme Culture Responds to Global Challenges. Its climate change strand aims to enable artists to tell the climate change story and improve practices in arts and cultural organisations. In Malaysia the British Council will run Human-Nature, a three year programme of collaborations and partnerships between the UK and Malaysia Civil Society Organisations and arts sectors, to explore Malaysia’s cultural diversity and biodiversity, and develop creative responses to climate adaptation.

Under our Malaysia Human-Nature Programme, we are delighted to announce a delegation opportunity for seven art representatives to Borneo, Malaysia in March 2024. This immersion in the Borneo context and communities will be a unique opportunity for the group to participate in a research trip focused on exploring and addressing climate change through arts, science and technology, to ignite conversations and inspire change. It will involve opportunities for the group to learn and increase their knowledge about climate change and adaptation in Borneo alongside building cultural connections with the Malaysian creative sector.

We are looking for a cross-disciplinary, cross-skills group of individuals who have a strong interest in developing their knowledge in this area, making new connections and have a special interest in Malaysia’s cultural diversity and biodiversity. We are particularly interested in candidates who are keen to raise awareness and explore creative solutions for addressing climate change through the arts, technology and science which centre lived experience. We are also looking for participants who can create further legacy with the knowledge and experience gained through the research trip.
