We Are Here Scotland Creators Fund

We Are Here SCT CIC (674720) is a Community Interest Company that has been
established to ensure that there is a platform that supports and amplifies the voices of bipoc artists and creatives in Scotland. Within Scotland's creative industries there
remains a significant lack of consistent bipoc representation or sustained
development opportunities that allows us to showcase our work to a wider
mainstream audience.  

We Are Here Scotland Creators Fund has been set up to provide bipoc artists and
creatives with funding opportunities that will help them progress in their professional
development whether that be funding for:

*New equipment
*Residencies
*Individual projects
*Collaborative projects
*Exhibitions
*Showcases

If the fund is successful it is envisioned that for a six month period in 2021 we will be
able to support two different individuals/groups each month with £500 each which would allow us to support a good number of artists and creatives across Scotland. And if the fund passes our intended
target of £6000 then we will be in the position to support more artists and
creatives throughout 2021.

In terms of challenging the inequalities within Scotland's creative industries we need
to ensure that the developing careers of bipoc artists and creatives are
supported on a consistent and meaningful basis. And the creators fund is a small way
in which we move things forward and maintain a presence in Scotland that we hope
can inspire future generations of artists, creatives and also be the start of 
a much needed discussion regarding representation in Scotland's creative industries.

Support for the We Are Here Scotland Creators Fund will in no doubt make a
significant impact for many bipoc artists and creatives in Scotland. 


Thank you for your time and support
