A Creative Scotland funded initiative, Tasgadh, will continue to offer small grants of up to £1,000 to organisations and individuals involved in Scottish Traditional Arts.
The fund is managed by Fèisean nan Gàidheal on behalf of Creative Scotland to provide support for traditional artists and organisations to create, perform, tour and showcase work. Professional development applications can also be supported though the fund.
The final deadline date for Tasgadh applications this financial year is Friday 1 February 2019. Guidelines and application forms are available at feisean.org/tasgadh where a full list of grants offered is also published as well as some case studies of successful applicants from previous rounds.
Fèisean nan Gàidheal Chief Executive, Arthur Cormack, welcomed the on-going commitment from Creative Scotland: "Having operated Tasgadh for three years now, demand has demonstrated there is a need within the Traditional Arts sector for access to small grants which are relatively light touch and offer a fast decision. Creative Scotland continues to support traditional arts directly and will deal with larger projects through other routes, but we are very happy they undertook to fund Tasgadh in 2018-19 with £31,500 available to Scottish traditional music, dance and storytelling projects."
