Creative Scotland distributes funding for the arts, screen and creative industries from two primary sources, the Scottish Government and the National Lottery. This funding is the means by which we support a portfolio of organisations across Scotland, as well as how we help with the development of individuals, the funding of ideas and projects, and how we deliver specific activity with partners.

In this section you’ll find everything you need to know about our funding programmes, and the help that’s available when pulling together an application.  If you’re not sure which is the right funding programme for you, try our new Funding Finder, or take a look at our Funding FAQs.  If all else fails, please get in touch, or to be kept up to date with what is happening, sign up for our regular funding updates.
