Year of Young People 2018 Open Event Fund

EventScotland is now inviting the events and festivals sector across Scotland to apply for support through its Year of Young People 2018 Open Event Fund.

The Year of Young People 2018 Open Event Fund has been designed to support proposals that will provide an events programme created especially for 2018. Through this funding opportunity, EventScotland is seeking exciting proposals from both new and existing events taking place in Scotland during 2018, that will capture the imagination, resonate strongly with the objectives for the year and provide strong opportunities for celebration, engagement and high levels of participation.

The Open Event Fund is now open (7 March 2017).

Potential applicants must contact EventScotland to discuss their proposal in advance of preparing an application. If you are currently supported by EventScotland and have an allocated Event Manager then please discuss directly with them in the first instance.

Once applicants have discussed their proposal with EventScotland and are eligible to apply, they should complete the application form which will be sent to them.

The deadline for applications is Monday 12 June 2017 at 12pm (for events taking place 1 January – 31 December 2018).

Contact us by phoning 0131 472 2313 or by email at Event Scotland.
