The Youth Arts Small Grants Scheme is part of a Scottish Government Covid-19 funding package to support the arts, administered by Creative Scotland.
A number of organisations across Scotland have been awarded ‘funding pots’ through the Small Grants Scheme to distribute small grants to freelance artists, to work with children and young people across Scotland. Findhorn Bay Arts is delighted to be one of these organisations and we have awarded a grant which will enable us to distribute £40,000 to local artists/ creative practitioners!
With these awards we aim to create opportunities for our local artists/ creative practitioners to develop their own programmes of youth arts activity that engage with a range of local organisations and young people in Moray, especially those most affected by Covid-19.
The fund is now open for applications and will close on Monday 1st March 2021. If you are freelance artist or creative practitioners living and/ or working in Moray and up to 50 miles in neighbouring regions, looking to work directly with children and young people in Moray, this fund could be for you!
