New Culture Fund Created by The City of Edinburgh Council

The City of Edinburgh Council has partnered with The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo to stimulate and support artistic and cultural projects that benefit Edinburgh and those who live in and visit the city.

The aim of this fund in 2018/19 is to support artist-led projects in Edinburgh that extend the reach of arts and cultural engagement and help overcome barriers to access, whether they are geographic, financial, social or other.

They invite proposals for new ways of working, and projects can take various forms, including:

  • participatory activity and workshops;
  • exhibitions or performances in new spaces across the city;
  • collaborative projects between artists and communities;
  • any other activity which demonstrably meets the purpose of the scheme.

The fund will award grants of up to £5,000 (£10,000 in exceptional circumstances) to organisations undertaking activity in Edinburgh.
