Youth Arts Small Grants Fund
OnFife has launched a small grants initiative to support freelance artists and creatives to work with young Fifers on new projects.
Grants of between £500 and £5000 are available to work with children and young people, especially those who have been most affected by COVID-19.
The Youth Arts Small Grants Scheme is funded by Creative Scotland as part of the Scottish Government’s Covid-19 Emergency Fund.
The grant will not only enable freelance youth arts practitioners to deliver activity for the benefit of Fife’s children and young people but also to strengthen connections with organisations and communities.
Projects must be delivered in partnership with relevant organisations and can take place between April 2021 and March 2022.
“We have vast experience with co-ordinating funding and we’re delighted to announce this opportunity to support artists and creatives, particularly during these difficult times, to help them use their creativity and skills to connect and engage with young people in Fife,” said Michelle Sweeney, OnFife’s Director of Creative Development. “I would encourage people to take advantage of this funding to create projects that will have a positive impact on our communities.”
OnFife will showcase all the artistic works at the end of the project.
Information sessions will be held on 10 and 17 February - 3pm and 6pm and the deadline for applications is Monday 8 March. To book a slot in one of the sessions just get in touch.
