This fund is one of Creative Scotland’s key funding programmes, supporting the wide range of activity initiated by artists, writers, producers and other creative practitioners in Scotland.
The Open Fund will support a period of research, development and/or delivery of creative activity for up to 24 months. They will ask you to tell them the start and end date for this activity and to describe the outcomes, benefits and impacts that you wish to achieve.
This fund is designed to support creative activity such as a specific project, production or a period of research and development. It can support an individual’s time where this is related to specific creative outcomes.
Freelance and self-employed artists and creative practitioners living in Scotland who are at least 18 years old. You must have a UK bank account in your name.
If you are not a self-employed individual or a sole trader then you are not eligible to make an application to the Open Fund for Individuals. You should look at the other funding programmes run by Creative Scotland or partners, including the Open Fund for Organisations.
You can apply for between £500 and £100,000.
There are no deadlines for this fund – you can apply year-round.
