Funding is available to support Scottish young people aged 14-20 to develop their talent in a range of creative areas.

The Creative Scotland Nurturing Talent - Time to Shine Fund supports young people aged 14-20 who require financial assistance in developing their talent within the creative industry. Funding will be awarded to those young people who demonstrate enthusiasm, ambition and talent in their chosen field and who would benefit from financial assistance in order to develop this further.
Both individuals and groups may apply for funding ranging between £50 and £600.


Funding is available to young people aged between 14 and 20 who live in Scotland and wish to develop their talent in one or more of the following areas: Drama; Dance; Music; Film; Visual Arts; Literature; and Digital Arts.
Funding is particularly targeted at those who may not be able to develop their talent further due to the barriers of:
• Affordability – inability to afford costs related to arts activity.
• Geography – issues with accessing opportunity due to their location.
• Disability – issues with taking part due to cost or unsuitable infrastructure or support.
Applications are welcomed from individuals or groups.
Grants can be awarded to help support talent development through:
• Artistic development – eg auditioning, training, participating in workshops, work shadowing or mentoring.
• Promotion and showcasing – eg staging an exhibition, recording a demo, marketing a performance or publishing written work.
• Peer-to-peer delivery – eg hosting a workshop or setting up a local group.

The next deadline for applications is 9 October 2017.
