Creative Scotland’s “Open Fund: Sustaining Creative Development” is open for applications from third sector groups and organisations for grants of £1,000 – £100,000 for activity lasting up to 12 months.
The fund aims to enable organisations to explore ways of working that will help them to adapt and respond to the current changing circumstances. The overall budget for this fund in 2021/22 is £7 million.
With this fund, Creative Scotland wants to ensure that the experience of the arts and creative activity benefits as many people as possible across Scotland’s communities and places, and that Scotland’s creative workforce and businesses have opportunities to develop, evolve and flourish.
Applicants should be organisations and groups based in Scotland whose work or project involves the arts, screen and creative industries. There is no deadline; applications can be submitted at any time.
Please note, this fund is now solely for organisations; individuals can apply to the refreshed Open Fund for Individuals.
For further information, including eligibility criteria, application guidance and how to apply, please visit the Creative Scotland website.
