Heritage of Future Past - Call for Partners

Heritage of Future Past is under the British Council’s Culture Responds to Global Challenges programme – celebrating the transformative power of arts and culture to change attitudes, support more equal societies and the protection and promotion of cultural expression, diversity and heritage at risk.

Heritage of Future Past has been implemented in Viet Nam since 2018, working with diverse local communities to safeguard and promote heritage at risk, and to create opportunities for local people to directly contribute to and benefit from the safeguarding and promotion of their cultural heritage. For more information about Heritage of Future Past, please visit: https://www.britishcouncil.vn/en/programmes/arts/heritage-future-past 

We are currently looking for partners to support the technical delivery of our Cultural Heritage Grant Programme to individuals, groups and communities working with cultural heritage to improve local wellbeing and livelihoods. Our main focus for the next three years will be on the ethnic highlanders’ communities in Central Highlands (Gia Lai, Kon Tum), and Cham communities in South Central Coast (Ninh Thuan). However, we are open to work with other ethnic minority communities in harder-to-reach areas should opportunities arise.

Details on what we are looking for in a potential partner are provided in this link below https://www.britishcouncil.vn/en/programmes/arts/opportunities/heritage-future-past-call-for-partners. Please send an Expression of Interest (EoI) using the form provided to [email protected] before 24 June 2022.

We propose to work with like-minded partners in mutually beneficial partnerships, where partners co-create and co-manage the programme, reflect and share learning of best practices, and jointly advocate for inclusive and innovative ways of working with culture heritage to realise sustainable development goals.

Partnerships we are looking to form may involve budget transfer from the British Council to the partner for management. Maximum budget that can be transferred to one partner per year does not exceed GBP 30,000 (or approximately VND 870,000,000). Budget can be used to cover costs such as professional fee, allowance and honorarium for staff (i.e. trainer, manager, admin and support staff), travel and accommodation, and other platform fee (i.e. share of rent or other office facility).

We follow the EU-UN cost norms for development projects in Viet Nam.

We encourage partner organisations to make non-cash contribution to the programme. Non-cash contribution can come in form of existing staff cost or facility cost that can be used solely for the benefit of the joint programme.
