Glasgow 2014 unveils £4million fund for Cultural Sector
Posted on: Wednesday 19th December 2012This Fund is a major component in the development of the Glasgow 2014 Cultural Programme, which will be a nationwide celebration. It aims to enhance the Games experience for spectators and visitors, and create a platform to showcase the best of Glasgow and Scotland's culture alongside that of the Commonwealth.
Individual artists, community-led groups and arts organisations are invited to apply for awards that could range from £20,000 up to £300,000 through the scheme, which is the result of a partnership between Glasgow 2014, Creative Scotland and Glasgow Life.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.Successful proposals will demonstrate a compelling connection to the Games, link to the journey of the Queen's Baton Relay across Scotland or to other significant Games milestones, such as 'One Year To Go'.The bulk of cultural activity will take place between June and the end of August 2014, though it is anticipated that preliminary activity will take place in 2013 and early 2014. The deadline for applications is 22 February 2013
