Creators’ Fund + Grants & Mentorship

Creators’ Fund+ is a new 1-year pilot programme, supported by The National Lottery through Creative Scotland, will provide 8 Black People and People of Colour (BPoC) creative and cultural professionals living in Scotland with £2000 grants and 20 hours of mentorship from industry professionals to elevate their careers.

Building on the success of the original Creators' Fund which offered £500 microgrants and 5.5 hour mentorships, Creators' Fund+ seeks to inspire a future generation of BPoC creatives in Scotland while starting an important discussion about representation in the country’s creative industries.
