Muriel Spark 100: Endless Different Ways Small Grants Fund

Muriel Spark100

About the Programme

Endless Different Ways, the Muriel Spark Small Grants Fund will offer small funding awards to individual writers, artists and groups who are looking to celebrate the work, contribution or legacy of Muriel Spark.

Funding can be used to create new work; explore some aspect of Muriel’s life; travel and/or undertake a residency linked to places or ideas which were significant to Muriel; or to develop and deliver other ideas inspired by Muriel and which emerge from the artistic and creative community in Scotland.

The primary purpose of all activity being supported is to allow for new work to be created alongside the foregrounding and discussion of Muriel Sparks’ own contribution.

Who can apply

We would like to support individual writers, artists, creative practitioners, groups and organisations through the fund.

We are keen to support ideas and projects from artists at every stage of their career –  but applicants must be outwith full time education, including any postgraduate study, before the date of submission.

Individuals and organisations already in receipt of Creative Scotland Funding can apply, but you need to clearly demonstrate that this funding is for a new discrete project, and is not being used as co-funding for other activity. All applicants must be based in Scotland.

Budget available

12 awards of up to £1,500 are available to support people and projects across a range of art forms.


The deadline for proposals has now passed and the selected projects were announced in January 2018.
