Made in Scotland is a partnership initiative run by Creative Scotland in collaboration with the Federation of Scottish Theatre (FST), the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society and the Scottish Music Centre (SMC). Funded through the Scottish Government's Edinburgh Festival Expo Fund, the initiative is a showcase designed to raise the international profile of Scottish artists through enabling Scottish dance and theatre artists to present ambitious work to international promoters at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Through Made in Scotland, funding is provided for the presentation of:
High quality and artistically ambitious productions which promote the work of Scottish artists and companies which are 'export-ready' for the international market.
Productions which involve Scottish artists and companies in international co-productions, or in collaboration with international artists or companies.
|13 Sunken Years by Stellar Quines was part of the 2014 Made in Scotland Showcase Programme|
Music: approximately £75,000.
Theatre & Dance: approximately £220,000.
Applications can come from individual artists, companies/organisations, ensembles, promoters, bands and venues. Individuals must be able to demonstrate that their principal home is in Scotland and companies and organisations must have their headquarters in Scotland.
The Fringe Expo Fund is intended to support the costs of presenting work at the Fringe (as opposed to the costs of commissioning and creating new work). It will provide support towards the costs involved in presenting a production at the Fringe and mitigate against the financial risks this involves.
Information sessions are being held for prospective applicants on the following dates:
15 October 2014 (Edinburgh)
16 October 2014 (Glasgow)
The deadline for applications is 24 November 2014.
