Regular Funding 2018-21 Art Form and Theme Overviews

The Regular Funding Network 2018-21 consists of organisations working across craft, dance, literature, music, screen, theatre, visual art and other specialisms. See how each of these is represented and contributes to both the network and broader arts and culture in Scotland:

Craft - Regular Funding 2018-21

Craft is a wide ranging and diverse sector, but one that overlaps with design, fashion & textiles and visual art. Craft and making has the power to enrich our culture and communities, though both traditional making and contemporary studio practice.

Dance - Regular Funding 2018-21

Dance is a thriving and ambitious part of Scotland’s cultural life and demonstrates huge value both in the range of performances experienced and the positive role of dance as the second most popular leisure pursuit in the lives of Scotland’s public.

Literature - Regular Funding 2018-21

In the Regular Funding Network 2018-21, we are supporting organisations which provide first class development opportunities for Scottish writers and create the conditions for a thriving literature scene, and a well-supported publishing sector, across Scotland.

Music - Regular Funding 2018-21

Music touches everyone who lives in Scotland, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity or ability, and the organisations included in the Music network are reaching out across the country, from urban centres to rural communities, from domestic bases to international spotlights.

Screen - Regular Funding 2018-21

In considering the portfolio of regularly funded screen sector organisations, our thinking has been informed by the Film Sector Review, the Film and Media Companion Piece to Creative Scotland’s 10-year Strategic Plan, Unlocking Potential, Embracing Ambition, published in Spring this year, and Creative Scotland On Screen – Film Strategy 2014-17, published at the start of October.

Theatre - Regular Funding 2018-21

Theatre in Scotland continues to be vibrant, imaginative and profoundly affecting, with artists making and delivering work in an ever-increasing range of places, spaces and contexts.

Visual Arts - Regular Funding 2018-21

Regular Funding to all these organisations contributes significantly to the public profile and enjoyment of contemporary art across Scotland and enables people to engage with some of the very best work being made in our times.

Other specialisms - Regular Funding 2018-21

To ensure that our network supports emergent forms of practice, we have included some organisations that have demonstrated their ability to work across creative and networked technology, linking design, digital and the development of communities of professional practice.

Creative Learning and young people - Regular Funding 2018-21

Creative Scotland is fully committed to supporting, developing and expanding creative learning and supporting access to creativity for young people, across the organisations we support throughout Scotland.

Equalities, diversity and inclusion - Regular Funding 2018-21

Our aim is to ensure that the cultural provision we fund offers a powerful mix of different types of high quality work that reflects and encourages a better understanding of the significant diversity of Scotland’s population.
