  • Creative Scotland - Youth Arts Small Grants Scheme 

    Created: 18/10/2020

    Creative Scotland has released new funds to support project activity with children and young people. 

    Youth Arts Small Grants Scheme 

    The Small Grants Scheme allows organisations and local authorities based in Scotland to apply for a small grants funding pot of up to £50,000 to distribute grants of £500–£5,000 directly to freelance artists/creative practitioners (locally, regionally or nationally), across all artforms, to deliver artist led youth arts activities.  

    Who can apply?

    The Scheme will support organisations to take ownership of the distribution of funding to youth arts practitioners to meet the needs of young people in their sector or local area. The fund also aims to strengthen and broaden organisations’ connections with youth arts practitioners. 

    To apply organisations must have the capacity to manage and disperse a small grants fund by March 2021 (up to 20% management fee can be applied for) and be networked with a range of freelance artists. For more information on how to apply for the fund, click here. 

    Deadline for applications is Monday 02 November 2020. If you would like to talk to someone at Creative Scotland about this fund, please contact [email protected]
