As part of Dance Base's ongoing free Catalyst workshops and discussion groups, for anyone working in dance, members of the Dance Base team will deliver a number of bespoke funding sessions, focusing on applying to Creative Scotland's Open Fund.
These are aimed at dance artists who wish to apply for support from Creative Scotland for a specific project. This could include: research, development, creation, touring and professional development etc. These sessions will span a number of meetings and conversations, which will include:
- An initial conversation with Dance Base's Chief Executive to discuss the project and provide advice on different funding options
- A meeting to go through a draft application, where constructive feedback will be provided. As a result of these meetings actions will agreed by both Dance Base (including members of the Catalyst team) and artists
- A final review meeting and support in submitting the application
There will be up to six slots across September to January. Sessions will be on a first come, first served basis.
Bookings for these sessions will open on Monday 24 July at 10.00, to book please email firstname.lastname@example.org, with a brief outline of your project, including timelines and ideal submission deadlines, highlighting which time period would best suit you (Sept - Oct or Nov - Jan). If there is a demand, we are able to travel to different locations throughout Scotland. Please indicate your preferred location in your e mail.
These sessions are aimed at people working in the dance sector.
