Touring, Festivals and Arts Programming
About the Programme
The purpose of the Touring, Festivals and Arts Programming fund is to enable people across Scotland to access a wide range of high quality arts activities through regular programming, touring and festivals.
There are three routes for applications within this programme:
1. Arts Programming
Through Arts Programming, applicants can receive support to present a programme of work. Creative Scotland is keen to encourage high quality and imaginative programmes which look to build new and diverse audiences.
Touring specifically supports the wider touring of existing work, including performances and exhibitions. Creative Scotland is particularly keen to encourage touring into areas with limited cultural provision as well supporting collaborations between producers and promoters.
Creative Scotland aspires to develop and nurture the festivals scene in Scotland by supporting festivals of national and international significance.

Both Individuals and Organisations can apply to this fund.
In 2013/14 the total budget available for Touring, Festivals and Arts Programming is £2.8m. Individual awards will be in the region of £1,000 - £60,000.
