Partners sought to help administer funds to previously under-represented groups of young people
In August 2020, the Scottish Government announced that the culture and heritage sectors in Scotland were to benefit from a £59m funding package to protect jobs and help the industry weather the effects of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
As part of this announcement £3m was allocated to support youth arts and ensure creative opportunities for children and young people continue to exist across Scotland despite the COVID-19 pandemic, including a £50k boost to the Nurturing Talent Fund to provide opportunities to young, emerging artists who are entering a challenging funding environment.
Following a review of awards to date, we are interested in testing out approaches to nurturing talent for some of the young people who are currently under-represented in Nurturing Talent Fund awards to date.
The deadline for submissions of expressions of interest is 5pm on Friday 8 January 2021.
