Creative Scotland distributes funding for the arts, screen and creative industries from two primary sources, the Scottish Government and the National Lottery. This funding is the means by which we support a portfolio of organisations across Scotland, as well as how we help with the development of individuals, the funding of ideas, new work and projects, and how we deliver specific activity with partners.

In this section you’ll find everything you need to know about how our funding works, and the help that’s available when pulling together an application. If you’re not sure which is the right funding programme for you can take a look at our Funding FAQs. Alternately please get in touch with our Enquiries Service who can help answer any questions you have. And if you want to be kept up to date by email, sign up for our Funding Updates.
