A new fund to help boost youth arts provision across Scotland will go live on Monday 6 January 2014 with an application deadline of 5pm, Friday 28 February 2014.
The £3.5million Hub Development Fund will support partnerships between national and regional youth arts and other youth service providers, to deliver youth arts provision across a range of artforms.
The new fund comes on the back of Scotland’s recently launched arts strategy for young people aged 0-25yrs, Time To Shine. The strategy sets out a vision and recommendations to enable Scotland’s children and young people to flourish and achieve, through the arts and creativity.
The fund will be open to Scottish based arts and cultural organisations with a proven track record in delivering quality youth arts programmes. To be eligible, organisations will be required to work in partnership with other providers of youth services across more than one artform.
It is anticipated that supported organisations will act as local, regional and national area ‘hubs’ coordinating improved collaboration between local and national youth arts providers and other youth service providers.
