British Council study tour to Brazil: an invitation to join

As part of the ‘Transform’ programme, which aims to develop the artistic dialogue between the UK and Brazil, the British Council will be running a study tour to Brazil from 26 October to 3 November 2013, with the support of Arts Council England.

This is the first British Council UK museum delegation to Brazil and the 2013 Brazil Study Tour will visit Sao Paolo, Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte, and will provide UK museum professionals with a unique opportunity to make contact and develop partnerships with leading national and regional museums in Brazil in the run up to the World Cup in 2014 and the Olympics in 2016.

Participating museums will be expected to make a contribution of £300 towards the cost of the tour.

If you would like to join the delegation, please email Jane Weeks Museums & Heritage Adviser, British Council, for an application form jane.weeks@britishcouncil.org.  Deadline for applications is Thursday 5 September.
