The second round of the Culture Project Fund in 2017/18 is a pilot partnership between the City of Edinburgh Council and Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo. It will allow grants of approximately Â£5,000 to be awarded to organisations creating new work in Edinburgh, thanks to a generous Â£50,000 charitable donation towards the Councilâ€™s Culture Fund Project from the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.
The partnership extends the support available to artists in the city for locally produced performing arts projects, by helping to cover some of the costs artists face when developing new performing arts work.
The fund is open to any constituted organisation and applicants are encouraged to seek partnership support and apply for the exact funds needed. It is also open to organisations already in receipt of Council support. Applications close on Wednesday 8th November 2017 at 12 Noon and will be judged by a panel of industry specialists.

About Creative Carbon Scotland:
Creative Carbon Scotland is a partnership of arts organisations working to put culture at the heart of a sustainable Scotland. We believe cultural and creative organisations have a significant influencing power to help shape a sustainable Scotland for the 21st century.
In 2011 we worked with partners Festivals Edinburgh, the Federation of Scottish Threatre and Scottish Contemporary Art Network to support over thirty arts organisations to operate more sustainably.
We are now building on these achievements and working with over 70 cultural organisations across Scotland in various key areas including carbon management, behavioural change and advocacy for sustainable practice in the arts.
Our work with cultural organisations is the first step towards a wider change. Cultural organisations can influence public behaviour and attitudes about climate change through:
Changing their own behaviour;
Communicating with their audiences;
Engaging the publicâ€™s emotions, values and ideas.
