Our activities

Our arts team work with the best of British creative talent to deliver innovative, high-quality events and develop collaborations with artists and cultural institutions. As a part of our Creative Economy programme we support young professionals and forge connections between the growing creative industries in the UK and Poland.

Take Over Project – Engaging young people with the arts

Take Over was a Creative Europe co-funded initiative which sees the British Council collaborate with four performing arts organisations across Europe (Greece, Serbia, Italy and Poland) helping them to connect with 18-28 year olds. It encouraged young adults to engage in the cultural life of their cities, while also providing them the opportunity to develop skills, knowledge and the connections they need to kick start a career in the arts world.
