Funding to Support Cultural Organisations Severely Impacted by Coronavirus (Scotland)

The Scottish Government has announced details of its £15 million Culture Organisations and Venues Recovery Fund to support the sustainability of cultural organisations that have been severely impacted by coronavirus.

Grants of between £10,000 and £150,000, (and up to £250,000 in exceptional circumstances) are available to help protect jobs in the cultural sector, and to support organisations who are at significant threat of insolvency as a result of COVID-19 restrictions. This includes organisations that provide opportunities for audiences (including galleries, commercial theatres, and nightclubs) as well as those that enable and deliver cultural activity (including production facilities, and dance companies).

The Fund will be delivered by Creative Scotland, and will be open to applications from 12pm on the 17th September 2020 until 12pm on the 24th September 2020.
