Funding Opportunity

Creators' Fund

We are happy to announce that applications for We Are Here Scotland’s Creators’ Fund are now live. The fund aims to provide practical funding opportunities for Black and POC artists and creatives across Scotland, along with one-to-one mentorship from experienced industry professionals.

We Are Here Scotland (WAHS) launched the Creators’ Fund to provide BIPOC artists and creatives with funding opportunities that will help them progress in their professional development. On 9 June, the Creators’ Fund reached its £6000 target, and we are now inviting applications from eligible individuals. The fund will not only provide financial support, but also practical career advice, support and guidance.

For the first round of the Creators’ Fund, we will be selecting 7 creators who will each receive £500.

We Are Here Scotland will be facilitating drop-in sessions for those seeking help around the Creators’ Fund application. This will give people an opportunity to ask any questions.

The first drop-in sessions are as follows:

- Thursday, 26 August 6.30pm-7.30pm via Zoom (online)

- Wednesday, 1 September 8.30pm-9.30pm via Instagram Live (online)

If you would like to attend the Zoom session, please email hello@weareherescotland.com.
