Diversity & Inclusion Fund open for Edinburgh-based creatives

06 December 2021


The Diversity and Inclusion Fund seeks to support the work and narratives of ethnically diverse artists and creatives which have been developed and delivered through multi-art form collaborations and partnerships.

Grants will be awarded to projects that promote greater partnership collaboration between minority ethnic artists/practitioners, independent creatives and/or Edinburgh-based cultural organisations. Projects should reach, involve, benefit and engage ethnically diverse artists/creative practitioners and cultural organisations based in Edinburgh.

The fund is intended to support projects and activities, including professional development, production development, development of work and cultural events, that utilise multiple art forms, such as visual and performing arts (music, dance, spoken word and theatre), film, digital arts, literature and poetry, to promote greater collaboration and partnerships between ethnically diverse artists and creatives and cultural organisations in Edinburgh. Priority will be given to quality multi art form projects.

A total budget of £100,000 is available offering grant awards of up to £10,000 for projects developed in financial year 2021/22 and completed by the end of December 2022.
