Traditional Arts Commissioning

About the Programme

The purpose of the fund was to support new commissions of Traditional Arts activity, of various scales and art forms, and that could be performed and/or exhibited regionally, nationally and internationally.  The work should have reflected regional diversity and Scots and/or Gaelic where appropriate.  The fund prioritised projects that would extend the audience for Scotland’s Traditional Arts and involve collaboration between Traditional Artists and arts organisations whose core purpose is not focussed on the Traditional Arts.

The Traditional Arts Commissioning fund ran between 2011-13 and is now closed. From September 2014, anyone interested in funding for this sort of activity should now look at the Open Project Fund.
