Applications now open for the CashBack for Creativity Open Fund. Apply for up to £10k to support creative learning opportunities for targeted young people. There is one deadline in 2019 of 25 January 2019.
Delivered in partnership with YouthLink Scotland, the Open Fund is a strand of Creative Scotland’s CashBack for Creativity programme. The CashBack for Creativity Open Fund will support organisations seeking small amounts of funding so that they can deliver creative activity to young people – primarily those young people living in deprived communities and who have traditionally found it hardest to access such creative opportunities.
We would like to see applications for projects that provide opportunities to as many young people as possible, should be fun, engaging and accessible. Projects will be expected to engage young people in a short-term project that builds their confidence, self-esteem, and enhances their wellbeing. Applicant organisations can apply for funding of up to £10k, to deliver up to 12 months of creative activity to young people aged 10-24.
