Dumfries & Galloway Council and DG Unlimited (Dumfries and Galloway Chamber of the Arts) invite funding applications from organisations, community groups and individuals to the Dumfries & Galloway Regional Arts Fund.
The Dumfries & Galloway Regional Arts Fund is designed in collaboration with DG Unlimited and aims to help deliver and increase the impact of arts projects at regional level. The scheme is part of the council's Place Partnership with Creative Scotland.
Investment priorities were developed by DG Unlimited on behalf of the arts sector in the region.
There is an allocation of just over £100,000 available to support projects through the Regional Arts Fund. Funding is available under six Strands: Art & Place; Youth Arts/Early Career Development; Touring; Supporting Practice Next Stages; International Ambition- Reaching Out and Bringing In; and Programme Enhancement and Audience Development.
Details of the fund and how to apply can be found at here
Applications must be submitted on or before 5pm on Friday 28th November 2014, for consideration by early 2015. If funds remain thereafter, further closing dates will be set and the details will be available from the Council’s website.
There is considerable advice for applicants on the Council’s website and from Third Sector Dumfries and Galloway. Local Area Arts Hub Convenors will also be able to advise applicants – their contact details are available from the DG Unlimited website. If applicants are still unsure what is required please ring the External Funding Unit or contact them by email. Please ensure you read all the guidance and information carefully before applying.
