  • visual arts/crafts (includes art, painting, sculpture, crafts, design, fashion and architecture)

Culture Grants of up to £500 are available for groups

It is available to groups in Fife to:

  • start or develop creative activities within the group
  • add to your group’s experience if you already have artistic or cultural aims
  • organise a cultural experience for group members

For example groups could pay a tutor to lead an experimental activity, buy materials, create a webpage or organise a visit to a performance.
Groups must be constituted to be able to apply, except for groups of young people who can apply but must provide a local independent professional referee to support the application.

Culture Grants of up to £150 are available to individuals

It is available to individuals who live in Fife:

  • to take part in new cultural experiences and to make the most of cultural opportunities on offer
  • who want to develop their creative talent and skills.

For example you could seek support to help you attend a short course or conference, purchase equipment or research local history.  This grant is to help you do something you wouldn’t otherwise be able to do.

For advice on making an application please contact the Cultural Partnerships Team, tel 01592 583255.  All applications should be submitted a minimum of 6 weeks before commencing your activity or project.
