CashBack for Creativity: Open Arts Fund
Deadline: 19 September

YouthLink Scotland is delighted to announce the launch of the CashBack for Creativity: Open Arts Fund for 2014/15. The Open Arts Fund is a strand of Creative Scotland's CashBack for Creativity programme which is being delivered in partnership with YouthLink Scotland. It is a part of the Scottish Government's CashBack for Communities programme which reinvests the proceeds of crime back into communities to benefit Scotland's young people.

The CashBack for Creativity: Open Arts Fund aims to deliver the following outcomes:

  • Increase the numbers of young people participating in high quality arts programmes,
  • Increase the access to arts programmes for young people who would not normally have access, or who are considered to be vulnerable or at risk of offending.
  • Young People build their confidence and self-esteem, and develop positive behaviours.
  • Young people develop confidence in their skills and develop aspirations for further learning and development.
  • Young people progress onto further learning, training and personal development opportunities.
  • Increase the number of opportunities for young people who are from areas which demonstrate need.

A total of £200,000 will be invested in community based arts programmes with individual proposals being able to access awards of up to £10,000.  Applications are invited from organisations within the youth work sector and/or those working with young people to support the delivery of FREE arts activities. Further details and access to the online application form can be found  at http://www.youthlinkscotland.org/Index.asp?MainID=18576
