Sunny G Radio, UP2STNDRD and 644 Studios have partnered with Creative Scotland for the second year of the multi-artform small bursary programme for individuals and collectives working in Hip Hop.
The Scottish Hip Hop Bursaries will support approximately 20 applicants with grants of between £500 – £1,500 for projects that support artists working in Hip Hop to develop their practice and test out new ideas.
The programme has been developed as a partnership between Sunny G Radio, UP2STNDRD, 644 Studios and Creative Scotland, to ensure that the opportunities available are shaped by those working in the Hip Hop sector in Scotland.
The bursaries can support projects in any art form, including but not limited to music, visual arts, dance, drama, literature, and screen.
A panel including representatives from Sunny G Radio, UP2STNDRD, 644 Studios and Creative Scotland, will prioritise applications that address the following criteria:
Support artists to sustain their practice following the impact of Covid-19
Support small scale projects to test out ideas and foster new relationships within Hip Hop
Support professional development for creative practitioners
Support under-represented artists and communities to develop their work within the genre of Hip Hop
Support artists that do not have previous experience of receiving public funding
Support the development of Hip Hop in Scotland.
If you have successfully received funding previously from the Scottish Hip Hop Bursary, you are eligible to apply again. However, you must not apply for the same project, and you must explain in your application how further funding will continue to contribute to your professional development.
This year we are pleased to be able to offer successful projects the opportunity to have a one-hour mentoring session with one of the partner organisations. More details of this opportunity are included in the guidelines.
We will be hosting a live information session for the fund via Zoom on Tuesday 1st November at 6pm – 7pm, where we will talk through the application form and guidelines.
This event will be live captioned and recorded so it can be accessed at a later date. Please email us on email@example.com to book your place and receive the meeting link.
The fund will close on Thursday 17th November at 12:00pm.
Location: All Scotland
The deadline is Thursday 17 November 2022 at 12:00.
