What we do

The British Council has been working in Europe since 1937, and in Romania since 1938. Our arts programme aims to strengthen relationships following the UK’s exit from the EU and enable vital long-term partnerships between arts organisations and professionals from all four parts of the UK and Romania.

We work across all forms of art, from music, film and literature to performing arts, visual arts and design. Visit our global website to find out more about our arts work in Europe, including key future programmes such as Circular Cultures, Museums Revisited or Bespoke Brokers, and learn more about our current and past work in Romania in the sections below.
