The role of the British Council

The British Council is the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations. We build engagement and trust for the UK through the exchange of knowledge and ideas between people worldwide.

The British Council’s global arts team works with the best of British creative talent to develop innovative, high-quality events and collaborations that link thousands of artists and cultural institutions around the world, drawing them into a closer relationship with the UK.

Through our programme in Architecture, Design and Fashion we work with the best of British design in order to create strong international links across the globe. With partners we develop touring exhibitions, seminars, workshops and exchanges which celebrate the best of British and international design, celebrate international co-operation in design, encourage critical reflection and promote creative expression.
