Wildflowers and fungi are amazing! Thatâ€™s why weâ€™re inviting young people aged 14-25 to take part in a summer of activities and flex their creative skills. This year Grow Wild are offering not one, but two opportunities for young people to receive Â£500 by making a short video application telling Grow Wild their idea and how they will spend the money.Â Deadline for submission is the 2nd of July!
Creative projects in your community (14-25)
Young people can use their interest in photography, music, drama, dance, film, visual arts or more to celebrate UK native wild flowers and fungi in fun and inventive ways.
Co-created projects for emerging artists (18-25 only)
Apply to join with others across the UK to plan an autumn exhibition at renowned arts venue, Yorkshire Sculpture Park. This will include an artist masterclass at the venue in July.

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.
