CashBack for Creativity
About the Programme
CashBack for Creativity is part of the Scottish Government’s CashBack for Communities programme, which reinvests the proceeds of crime back into communities to benefit Scotland’s young people. Over a three year period (2011-2014) Cashback for Creativity aims to support a wide range of projects in dance, film and music - reaching communities where there is an identified and demonstrated need.
Funding situation in 2013/14
Between 2011-14, the Cashback for Creativity programme has an overall budget of £2.25 million. In 2012/13 (year 2) there was a significant demand for support from the programme, and we received funding requests totalling over £1.5 million (against a budget of £700,000). Because of the high quality of the applications received in year 2, a number of the projects which met the criteria, have been funded through this year’s allocation of funding.
As a consequence there will be no Open Fund for applications to this programme in 2013/14. There will be a managed fund, with a budget of £345k, to which Creative Scotland will invite applications.
