Creative Lives - Together Again Micro Grants
As creative groups start to meet up in person again, Creative Lives is offering 18 micro-grants to help make that happen. In particular, these 'Together Again' grants are to help groups or projects based in areas of Scotland, or with participants, experiencing deprivation.
You can use the grants for anything that will help your creative group meet up in person again (or help get a new group off the ground). Examples include:
Enhanced cleaning for your venue
Hall hire (if you temporarily need to move to a bigger space)
To cover transport costs that enable participation (if using public transport is now difficult)
To cover artists costs to reinvigorate or kick-start your activity
New materials (e.g. if your art materials have been lost through lack of use; you can no longer share certain items)
Who can apply?
are based in Scotland;
are run predominantly by volunteers (some paid employees/external expertise is OK as long as these are not the only decision-makers);
benefit people/places experiencing deprivation; and
are participatory and creative; and will spend their grant by September 2022.
