The Aberdeen City Council Creative Funding programme is open for applications. Individuals in the city can apply for up to £2,500 and not-for-profit organisations can apply for up to £8,000.

The Creative Funding programme offers cultural organisations with not for profit status, community groups, charities and individual artists or creatives the opportunity to apply for support to develop and/or deliver creative activity. 

This funding has previously been awarded to festivals, community groups, brand new arts organisations and has supported projects from emerging individual artists through to established organisations.  A range of projects can be considered for funding such as  performances, exhibitions, networking events or even something completely new and innovative; there are very few limitations on the type of creative project that can be supported. 

Organisations with not for profit status  can apply for awards of up to £8,000. That applies to Organisations that are based in Aberdeen, and those based out with Aberdeen City can also apply for funding to deliver an inclusive creative and cultural activity with communities in Aberdeen.

Individual applicants who are Aberdeen City residents can apply for awards of up to £2,500.  There are up to eight awards allocated annually for creative and cultural participatory activity with a community in the city.
