Please see information below about some interesting opportunities and funding available to Creatives.
The Castlegate Prize opens for entries on November 23. Artists must take the word ‘hope’ as the inspiration for their painting or drawing. All the £20 entry fees will be donated to YoungMinds, the UK’s leading charity fighting for young people’s mental health.
Right Here is a talent initiative run in association with Screen Scotland and BBC that offers Scotland-based filmmakers a unique opportunity to create a 30-minute creative documentary for broadcast.
Applications are open to filmmakers resident in Scotland and with at least two short films broadcast or publicly screened in festivals. We want to hear from directing talent who bring a distinct and alternative view of modern Scotland.
We’re particularly interested in hearing from people who are currently under represented in TV including: women; people with a disability; BAME; people from the LGBTQ community; and those from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Create:Inclusion, Creative Scotland Funding
Deadline: 21 January 2020 at 23:59
This fund seeks to increase the diversity of people in the arts, screen and creative industries. Creative Scotland’s reports ‘Understanding Diversity in the Arts’ and ‘Equality Matters’ highlighted numerous and complex barriers to access, progression and representation in the arts, screen and creative industries . Challenges are more acutely felt by women, people with parental responsibilities, disabled people and those from Black and minority ethnic backgrounds.
This fund aims to start addressing some of these well documented concerns and increase the diversity of people in the arts, screen and creative industries in Scotland.
