Create18 Funding

Apply for funding to hold an event in your local area during the Year of Young People 2018!

What is Create18?

As part of the Year of Young People 2018, an opportunity has arisen for Young Scot to work in partnership with EventScotland to establish a new, exciting fund. Create18 is open to groups of young people from across Scotland aged 8-26 who can apply to receive funding for events they would like to run in the Year of Young People 2018.

Create18 events could be anything from film festivals, gigs, theatre and dance performances, to art exhibitions, sports competitions, fashion shows and nature trails – we can’t wait to hear your ideas!

Why apply?

Create18 is a unique opportunity to create your own special events in your community which will sit alongside a programme of major ‘signature’ events with young people at the very heart of them!

Remember – The Year of Young People 2018 is a once in a lifetime experience as no other country has ever dedicated an entire year to young people!

Up for it?
Applications must clearly be completed by young people. You can refer to the Create18 Fund Criteria and Guidance notes when completing your application, which you can find alongside the Create18 Fund Application Form in the attachments section below.

Paper copies of the application forms can be requested from Create18 or by phoning the free Young Scot InfoLine on 0808 801 0338. You can also use these contact details if you have any questions or need some advice or support on completing the application form, or if you require any other formats.
