Cultural Organisations and Arts Venues Funding Round 2 - Perthshire Chamber of Commerce

Cultural Organisations and Arts Venues Funding Round 2

Culture Organisations and Venues Recovery Fund Round 2 – Applications open 17th June

Scotland’s First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, announced on Friday 11 May 2021 that the Scottish Government would deliver a second round of the Cultural Organisations and Venues Recovery Fund. The purpose of this fund is to offer further support to Round 1 recipients and also to help eligible organisations that didn’t receive funding in the first round.

The Scottish Government has made available £25 million for a second round of this fund as well as the Performing Venues Relief Fund.

The fund is intended to support organisations which are vital to the cultural life of Scotland, but which need financial support to prevent insolvency and/or significant job losses due to COVID-19.

Who can apply?

1. Cultural organisations and venues that were awarded funding in Round 1 of this fund, have complied with their funding agreement, and require further funding to help prevent insolvency and/or significant job losses.

2. Other cultural organisations and venues which are eligible but either did not previously apply, or did not receive funding in Round 1, and now require funding to help prevent insolvency and/or significant job losses.

Please visit the Creative Scotland website and download the guidance document for full details on eligibility.

Performing Arts Venues Relief Fund Round 2 – Applications open 17th June

Round 2 of the Performing Arts Venues Relief Fund aims to provide emergency funding to help performing arts venues remain solvent during the pandemic. It will also aim to provide support for the return of staff from furlough and new artistic commissions from freelance artists.

This fund is being launched at the same time as the second round of the Culture Organisations and Venues Recovery Fund, which is for organisations that derive their income from providing cultural activity to the public, as well as organisations that play a critical role in enabling that activity.

Previous recipients of funding from the Performing Arts Venues Relief Fund awarded in summer 2020 can apply for further support (this applies to both Creative Scotland Regularly Funded Organisations and other recipients).

In addition, any new applicants who meet the eligibility criteria can also apply. Please visit the Creative Scotland website and download the guidance document for full details on eligibility.

Some venues will potentially be eligible to apply to either this fund or the Culture Organisations and Venues Recovery Fund. However, you can only apply to one of the funds, not both. You should look at both options to assess which is the most appropriate to your needs.
