Opp: Theatre and Dance [ Touring Fund ]

This new £2m fund is open to support Scottish theatre and dance productions with the costs related to touring their work across Scotland. About the Fund: In late 2016, Creative Scotland commissioned an independent review of Touring for Theatre and Dance, and the final report was published in May 2017. Among the main conclusions was a call to establish a dedicated touring fund. This £2m fund has consequently been developed in partnership with the Federation of Scottish Theatre, and working groups made up of representatives of Scottish dance and theatre companies. This fund aims to change the way we tour publicly funded theatre and dance productions, and support greater access to a variety of theatre and dance for a diverse audience. It also aims to provide broader opportunities for a more diverse range of artists and producers. This fund aims to bring about this change by: • Funding high quality work to tour in a way that could improve the relationships between venues and producers of touring work • Funding work that will increase audiences across Scotland • Funding work that increases the diversity of artists, producers and companies touring theatre and dance across Scotland • Creating conditions where artists are recognised for their work and can retain a proportion of the income their work creates to sustain their ongoing practice • Creating conditions to support venues to be more sustainable and give them the ability to invest more in developing audiences • Supporting the programming of work in venues or locations that would not otherwise present it. This fund is supported by the National Lottery through Creative Scotland. Who can apply? All applicants must be based in Scotland and involved in the production, programming and/or touring of theatre and dance. We will accept applications from: • Individual dance and theatre artists, companies and organisations. • Independent dance and theatre producers • Consortia of venues. Deadlines: Deadline for applications: 6 November 2018 Decisions announced: Week commencing 17 December 2018. There will be 2 further deadlines in 2019, and we will publish dates for these in early 2019. For further information and to apply, please visit the link below >>>
