Emergency Covid-19 Funding for Cultural Organisations (Scotland)

The Scottish Government is making £25 million in funding available to support cultural organisations which are experiencing immediate financial hardship caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The funding will enable organisations that have lost income following the cancellation or deferral of performances or cultural activity to continue to operate and plan ahead.

The Cancellation Fund for Cultural Organisations, administered by Creative Scotland, will open to applications at 2pm on the 26th January 2022 and payments to organisations will begin from the 31st January 2022.

A further £6.5 million is being held in reserve for further sector recovery, including for independent cinemas, details of which will be made available over the coming weeks.
