Inspiring Scotland launches new Creative Communities programme – Wednesday August 12

Creative Communities is a new programme that aims to support and empower communities to develop cultural activities.

The programme will distribute up to £600,000 to support communities to develop new initiatives involving culture and creative arts for the period October 2020-June 2021.

In addition to investing in projects, Inspiring Scotland will provide a number of community organisations with development support to progress ideas to the point where they can be more fully funded over the course of a second year.

Creative Communities is funded jointly by the Scottish Government’s Culture and Justice directorates, and aims to extend opportunities for people to take part in culture throughout their lives.
