  • Violence against women and girls.
  • Female homelessness and rough sleeping.
  • Women in music.
  • General programme (for which the Government has identified a number of sub-themes).

Applications are accepted from formal consortia or from individual organisations, ideally working across a number of regions/countries within the UK.

Proposals are expected to provide additional activity not currently within mainstream provision.

This scheme provides funding to increase the number of young people participating in high quality arts programmes in Scotland.

Throughout the current cycle of the programme £300,000 will be awarded to support community-based arts projects, with individual proposals being able to access awards of up to £10,000 to deliver up to 12 months of creative activity for young people.

Awards from the fund will be made to organisations in the arts, screen and creative industries, third sector and youth work sector. Applicants should be based in Scotland, working with young people and supporting the delivery of free community-based arts activities for those aged 10-24 who are living in Scotland.
