Creative Communities is a new programme that aims to support and empower communities to develop cultural activities.
The programme will distribute up to £600,000 to support communities to develop new initiatives involving culture and creative arts for the period October 2020-June 2021.
In addition to investing in projects, Inspiring Scotland will provide a number of community organisations with development support to progress ideas to the point where they can be more fully funded over the course of a second year.
Creative Communities is funded jointly by the Scottish Government’s Culture and Justice directorates, and aims to extend opportunities for people to take part in culture throughout their lives.
Applications are open from July 1 until August 12.
