Creative Scotland Open Project Funding

Back to funding directory

Individual artists, groups and creative organisations who are based in Scotland can apply for funding between £1,000 and £150,000 for their artistic or creative projects. The fund supports small one-off events to longer programmes of work lasting up to 2 years such as:

  • projects which are about helping an artist to develop their skills;
  • projects that create something new and high quality, in any art form;
  • projects which are aiming to present high quality work to audiences, or projects which try to develop and reach new audiences for the arts; and
  • projects which encourage more people to take part in artistic and creative activity.

The fund can meet all or part of the cost of projects. Applications can be made at any time of year. However, applications for less than £15,000 should be made at least 8 weeks before the start of a project and at least 12 weeks for more than this.
