Opportunities Funding Young Scot - Create18 funding Area: ScotlandDeadline: 5pm, 21 August 2017 Young Scot, in partnership with EventScotland, is inviting young people to apply for Create18 funding to put on an event as part of the Year of Young People 2018. Create18 is open to groups of young people from across Scotland aged 8-26 years, and proposals for £250-£1,000 will be considered. Events could be anything from film festivals, gigs, theatre and dance performances, to art exhibitions, sports competitions, fashion shows and nature trails! This funding round is to support events taking place between 1 January and 30 June 2018. This is a unique opportunity to create special events in your local community which will sit alongside a programme of major ‘signature’ events by and for young people as part of the Year of Young People 2018. Applications must be completed by young people - the Young Scot Communic18 Team are on hand to provide support with developing your ideas. This is a team of young people recruited by Young Scot, Children in Scotland and the Scottish Youth Parliament to ensure all activities for the YoYP 2018 have young people at the centre - contact email@example.com or phone the free Young Scot InfoLine on 0808 801 0338.
