£4m cultural fund to celebrate 2014 Games

Funding / Culture / Glasgow 2014
Celebrations planned to build momentum and excitement in the run up to and during the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games are to benefit from a £4 million investment.

The Glasgow 2014 Cultural Programme Open Fund aims to develop a vibrant creative programme in Glasgow and across Scotland to compliment the largest multi-sport event the country has ever seen.

This fund is a major component in the development of the nationwide Glasgow 2014 Cultural Programme and aims to enhance the Games experience for Scotland’s communities, spectators and visitors, as well as present the best of Scotland’s culture alongside that of the Commonwealth.

A total of £4 million is available and individual artists, community-led groups and arts organisations are invited to apply for awards ranging from £20,000 up to £300,000.

Projects can be new and one-off events or enhancements of an existing festival or programme of work. They can feature in either or both the Scotland-wide programme Culture 2014 – which will focus on the countdown to the Games before the focus subsequently turns to other major events, such as the Ryder Cup and the Edinburgh Festivals – and Festival 2014, which will transform Glasgow during Games-time.

Further details on the Glasgow 2014 Cultural Programme and other opportunities, along with background information on the Games, and full guidelines on how to apply to the Glasgow 2014 Cultural Programme Open Fund can be found on the Creative Scotland website.

Applications close on Friday 22 February 2013.
