Creative Export Programme

Delivered through a series of three workshops, you’ll learn whether your business is ready to export, and work with experienced international trade advisors to put together an export action plan. The workshops will show you that exporting doesn’t have to be difficult and will cover everything from tariffs and visas to making your website work for key overseas market. Once you have completed the workshops you will be able to apply for a one-off Creative Export Grant to enable you to investigate your export potential.

What is the Creative Export Grant for?

The Creative Export Grant is a grant scheme within the Creative Export Programme. It is designed to help you investigate potential overseas markets. In the past, people have applied to this scheme to tour a theatre show internationally, attend overseas trade shows and conferences, or revamp a website to make it more friendly to non-UK customers.

Do I need to attend the workshop series to apply for the Creative Export Grant?

We recommend that you go through the workshop series before you apply for a Creative Export Grant as it will equip you with important knowledge to make the most out of the grant opportunity. If you believe you are already proficient in the world of exporting it may be possible to apply for the grant without attending the workshops. You will need to speak to our Trade & Investment Manager if you wish to do this.

What is the maximum amount I can apply for through the Creative Export Grant?

We understand that export investigation projects are likely to vary in shape and scope and so there is no fixed amount. You will work closely with our Trade & Investment Manager to put together an application and they will advise you on how much you can feasibly apply for.

What are my chances of success when applying to the Creative Export Programme?

Applying to this scheme is a competitive process. Even if you are eligible and your advisor has given you their support, there’s no guarantee of success. However, attending the workshops and working closely with our trade advisor will certainly strengthen your case
