Creative Scotland Announces 3 Year Funding For Arts Groups

25th January 2018

Creative Scotland is pleased to announce the network of organisations that will receive Regular Funding for the three-year period, April 2018 to March 2021, following the conclusion of an open application process.

The Regular Funding Network 2018-21 consists of 116 organisations, of which 19 are new and 97 continue with three-year funding, supported by £99m Grant in Aid funding through a three-year commitment from the Scottish Government, as set out in the recent draft budget statement.

Janet Archer, Chief Executive said, "Regular funding provides three-year funding to a wide range of organisations which create, present and support excellence, reaching out to all parts of Scotland and internationally."

The network demonstrates creative excellence, potential and ambition, with significant reach throughout Scotland, and internationally, and across many areas of creative practice including craft, dance, literature, music, screen, theatre and visual art.

The Regular Funding network consists of organisations that produce, present and distribute work; as well as development organisations which support the arts and creative sectors in Scotland to strengthen their future health and resilience.

Today, in response to recent strategic reviews of both Theatre and Touring; Creative Scotland also announce plans to create a new £2m Touring Fund in 2019/20, with support from the National Lottery, to support performing arts organisations in reaching more audiences in more parts of Scotland.

Organisations in the 2018-21 network, in turn, also support artists and creative practitioners across the country, in terms of employment and generating opportunities for public participation.

Support for creative learning and young people; Gaelic and Scots language; and traditional arts are also embedded into the network of 2018-21 Regularly Funded organisations, with a spread of activity across Scotland's places and communities.

Janet Archer, Chief Executive of Creative Scotland said: "I am pleased to announce the network of Regularly Funded organisations for 2018-21. This follows a welcome settlement from the Scottish Government in the recent draft budget enabling us to maintain the existing budget for Regular Funding.

"Regular funding provides three-year funding to a wide range of organisations which create, present and support excellence across craft, dance, literature, music, screen, theatre and visual arts, reaching out to all parts of Scotland and internationally.

“The network has been arrived at through a careful and thorough decision-making process involving staff across Creative Scotland and our Board. Regular Funding is a highly competitive application process where demand has once again, far outstripped available funding. While we can't support everyone, we seek to provide a range of different opportunities to access support across all of our funding routes, including Open Project and Targeted Funding.

“With this in mind, we are developing a new £2m Touring Fund for 2019/20, with support from the National Lottery, as part of our Targeted Funds. This will support touring companies to work with venues to grow audiences, offering a further alternative route to funding for performing arts organisations not included in the Regular Funding network."

Some key facts about the network include:

Overall budget of just over £99m
116 organisations, 19 of which are new to Regular Funding and 97 continue on three-year funding
Representation across craft, dance, literature, music, screen, theatre, and visual art
A range of development organisations that will help strengthen future health and resilience of the arts and creative sectors
Support for young people and creative learning in this Year of Young People, 2018
Strong representation for Gaelic, Scots and Trad arts
Geographical coverage across all parts of Scotland
Regular Funding is one of three routes to funding through Creative Scotland, alongside Open Project Funding for individuals and organisations, and Targeted Funding.

All organisations who have previously benefitted from Regular Funding, but who are not part of the 2018-21 network, will be offered transition funding for 6 months to the end of September 2018. Five touring Theatre companies who are not recommended for the Network 2018-21, will receive 12 months’ transition funding to take current funding levels to the end of March 2019. These organisations are Mischief La Bas, Catherine Wheels, Fire Exit, Rapture Theatre and Visible Fictions.
