Radical Childcare - Research Trip April 2019

Please note: the deadline for this has now passed.

About the programme

Creative Scotland invited representatives from the arts and creative industries in Scotland to join us on a fully-funded research trip to Birmingham in April 2019 to explore innovative solutions to flexible childcare which could be implemented in Scotland.

Creative Scotland covered the travel and accommodation costs for five people to travel to Birmingham as part of a group research trip, taking place (including travel time) from 23-25 April 2019. Applications were limited to one per organisation.

Who can apply?

The opportunity was aimed at professionals who run co-working, studio, rehearsal, workshop or residency spaces and invites them to investigate the practicalities of providing childcare as part of their offer.
