DICE - Developing Inclusive and Creative Economies - is British Council's new programme that will support the development of creative and social enterprises in the UK and five key emerging economies: Brazil, Egypt, Indonesia, Pakistan, and South Africa.
Aiming to foster inclusive growth and progress on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), DICE will take an innovative, cross-sectoral approach which draws on UK expertise in the creative and social economies.
DICE will operate at policy, institutional and individual levels. It will be co-designed and co-delivered by UK enterprises and sector support organisations such as impact hubs, accelerators and universities working in partnership with counterparts in these countries.
Through DICE, we will engage with policymakers and key influencers to help participating countries identify systemic barriers and promote legislation, strategies and funding that enable social and creative enterprises to flourish.
DICE Fund is a £2 million collaboration fund which is offering grants to support the development of creative and social enterprises through partnerships between UK organisations and counterparts in five emerging countries, including Brazil. The call is open from 3 September to 11 November 2018.
