Flexible funding 2011 - 2013

The Joint Board of Scottish Arts Council and Scottish Screen is investing £7.98m each year in the Flexible Funding programme (2011-2013) in order to achieve: 

A body of creative work of high quality, most but not necessarily all of which is presented or produced in Scotland. The work should be celebrated at home and beyond. The activity supported should result in a good geographic spread within Scotland.

Flexible Funding: the purpose

The fund has been established to enable:

  • an organisation to be directly involved in creating/supporting the production and/or public presentation of the work of artists and creative practitioners
  • an organisation to offer a range of services, support and advice to other arts and creative organisations, enabling these to best deliver and develop their programming and business objectives

The amount of funding for this programme is limited and the demand for funds is expected to be extremely high.  We will not be in a position to fund all applications which may be eligible and meet the criteria.   In addition, we may not be able to support your funding request in full.

Criteria for the fund

Organisations that apply must be based in Scotland and be able to demonstrate that they meet, or surpass, the requirements of the Scottish Arts Council’s Quality Framework.
