CashBack for Creativity is a programme funded by the Scottish Government's CashBack for Communities programme. It offers young people (10-24 years) across Scotland the opportunity to engage in creative and cultural activity. It provides high quality learning and developmental activities across all art forms which improve the skills and confidence of young people, raise attainment and aspirations, and provide pathways for further learning, training, education and employment.
The CashBack for Creativity programme has been awarded a total of £2.6m for Phase 4 which will run from April 2017 to March 2020. The programme will be supported by two funds in 2017:
The CashBack for Creativity Open Fund will create opportunities for a range of organisations, working in collaboration with artists across the country, to apply for funding of up to £10k to deliver high quality arts activities for up to 12 months. This fund will be administered by a partner organisation, working on behalf of Creative Scotland, and further details will be published in April 2017.
The CashBack for Creativity Targeted Fund will deliver a programme of engagement, learning, development and progression activities for young people in areas of deprivation across Scotland. The Fund will be delivered through a portfolio of projects / programmes, with applicant organisations able to apply for up to £120k to support work for up to three years in duration. Please read the below guidelines for further details.
The deadline for applications for the CashBack for Creativity Targeted Fund is 3 April 2017.
We will be running a series of information sessions in February and March 2017, providing an opportunity for potential applicants to find out more about the CashBack for Creativity programme and the application and decision making process.
