International funding

Working with diverse and international artists is a cornerstone of our work and Serious has partnered with embassies and cultural institutions representing countries from all over the world. These partnerships have delivered ambitious projects, showcased international talent and brought diverse audiences and artists together.

As a national organisation Serious is ideally placed to work with cultural institutions to identify the right platform and audience in order to programme and highlight quality international work. We are proud that our relationships with many of these organisations have lasted many years and continue to develop, enabling us to work with a great number of emerging international artists.
