DGUnlimited: Innovate Create Cultivate Fund

Closing date: Sun 28 Apr 2024: 12am

Innovate Create Cultivate is a simple way for established and emerging creative practitioners living and working in Dumfries and Galloway to apply for up to £750 to explore and further their practice.

The purpose of Innovate Create Cultivate is to enable creative practitioners to:

– Research and develop their practice.
– Generate bold new ideas.
– Test new ideas or creative direction.
– Create new work(s) of high quality.
– Enhance and/or learn new skills.
– Inspire audiences and communities.
– Contribute to the region’s economy.​

Who can apply
They want to hear from emerging and established creative practitioners from any art form with the exception of visual arts and crafts.

Applicants should evidence strong creative development, a continuous commitment to their practice and not be currently studying full time or part time for a qualification related to their creative practice. An exception may be made if you can show that you have an emerging or established practice and the support you are asking for is not linked to your studies.

Applicants must live within the borders of Dumfries and Galloway, but they will consider applications that propose to reach out into other regions and countries.

Funds Available
There is a total of £7,000 available for 2023/24, with individual awards being made up to a maximum of £750 each. You can apply for up to 100% of the total cost of the project, although they may offer a different amount to that requested.

Applications can be submitted by email to comms.dgu@gmail.com anytime up until midnight, Sun 28 April 2024. Applications will be assessed on a first come first served basis. If all available funds have been allocated before this date the fund will close. ICC funded projects must be completed by 31 July 2024, unless agreed in advance after discussion with a member of the DGU team.
