Made in Scotland is a curated showcase promoting high-quality music, theatre and dance to international promoters and audiences at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. It's a partnership between the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society, the Federation of Scottish Theatre, the Scottish Music Centre and Creative Scotland, and is supported through the Scottish Government’s Edinburgh Festivals Expo Fund.
The purpose of the Programme is to raise the international profile of Scottish artists through the promotion of Scottish work at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and this fund supports the Made in Scotland Showcase as well as Onward International Touring.
This showcase celebrates the wealth and diversity of work that is currently being produced in Scotland. Scottish dance, theatre, and music artists, groups and companies can apply to present artistically ambitious work at the Fringe as part of the Made in Scotland 2017 Showcase. Funding is intended to support the costs of presenting work at the Fringe. The work can be new or an existing production which will be re-staged at the Fringe.
We are looking for individuals, groups and organisations based in Scotland and working in theatre, dance and music to be part of Made in Scotland 2017. Applications can come from individual artists, companies, organisations, ensembles, promoters, bands and record labels.
This fund is only open to applicants based in Scotland, therefore companies and organisations must be based here and individuals must be able to demonstrate that their principal home is in Scotland. Student and non-professional companies are not eligible to apply.
Organisations already in receipt of Creative Scotland Regular Funding or project funds are eligible to apply, but need to clearly demonstrate the additional benefits that support from Made in Scotland will present.
The deadline for applications for Made in Scotland Showcase funding is usually in the Autumn (October/November). The deadline for 2017 has now passed.
One of the key aims of Made in Scotland is to maximise the benefit for Scottish artists on the international platform that is the Fringe. As part of this, funding is available to support any work created in Scotland which attracts interest from international promoters as a result of being showcased at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe - it is not just limited to those companies which have been part of a current or previous Made in Scotland Showcase.
The Made in Scotland Onward Touring fund is open to any individual or company based in Scotland which has presented a professional piece of theatre, dance or music at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and which, as a result, was seen by and programmed by an international presenter.
This is a rolling fund with no fixed deadlines. Applicants will be notified of the outcome no later than 8 weeks after receipt of application.
