Public Engagement

About the programme

The purpose of the Public Engagement programme was to address persistent inequalities in arts provision, to widen participation and address barriers to engagement in high quality arts. Funds were available to support arts organisations and artists to engage with diverse communities and/or work in community settings, to address inequalities and encourage wider participation in the arts, screen and creative industries.

The Public Engagement programme ran between 2012-14 but as of August 2014 the fund is now closed. From September 2014, anyone interested in funding for activity which broadens engagement in the arts should now look at the Open Project Fund.

If you require any advice about Creative Scotland funding, please contact the Enquiries Service on 0845 603 6000 (10am-12pm & 2-4pm Mon - Fri, voicemail outwith these hours) or email enquiries@creativescotland.com.
