Running from April 2017 – March 2020, the CashBack for Creativity programme is administered by Creative Scotland and funded by the Scottish Government’s CashBack for Communities programme, which redistributes the proceeds of crime to benefit young people. Creative Scotland has been awarded a total of £2.6m to deliver Phase 4 of the CashBack for Creativity programme. The programme will be administered through two funds, the CashBack for Creativity Open Fund (further details on this fund will be published in April 2017, please sign up to Creative Scotland’s newsletter for updates – http://www.creativescotland.com/what-we-do/latest-news/newsletter-sign-up) and the CashBack for Creativity Targeted Fund, now open for applications.
The CashBack for Creativity Targeted Fund will deliver a programme of engagement, learning, development and progression activities for young people in areas of deprivation across Scotland. The Fund will be delivered through a portfolio of projects / programmes, with applicant organisations able to apply for up to £120k to support work for up to three years in duration.
The deadline to apply for the CashBack for Creativity Targeted Fund is Monday 3 April. View the guidelines and download the application form at: http://www.creativescotland.com/funding/funding-programmes/targeted-funding/cashback-for-creativity
