Opportunity: The Made in Scotland Onward Touring fund is open

24 May 2022


Onward International Touring


One of the key aims of Made in Scotland is to maximise the benefit for Scottish artists on the international platform that is the Fringe.

As well as supporting the actual showcase of work during the Fringe each year, Made in Scotland also has separate funding available to enable artists, bands and ensembles based in Scotland to take up new international touring opportunities for work programmed as a direct result of the inviting promoter seeing the work at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Who can apply

The Made in Scotland Onward Touring fund is open to any individual or company based in Scotland which has presented a professional piece of theatre, dance or music at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe between the years 2015 to 2021 and which, as a result, was seen, and programmed, by an international presenter for the first time.


Whilst there are no deadlines for this fund, and you can apply at any time (until the budget is fully allocated) you must apply at least eight weeks before you are due to travel.

This funding is designed to help support international invitations that artists, companies and musicians may receive directly from their performances during the Fringe each year, and we aim to give you a decision on your application within eight weeks of receipt of your application.
