TTS. Digital Fund
TTS. Digital is Creative Scotland’s new fund supporting projects which will inspire digital creativity in young people as part of Time to Shine – Scotland’s National Youth Arts Strategy. Creative Scotland is hosting a series of information roadshows to give people the opportunity to find out more about the fund, the Dundee Roadshow takes place at the DCA on Wed 18th February, from 2-4pm.
The fund will be delivered in two phases:
- Phase One will support up to 10 pilot projects.
- Phase Two (from Aug 2015) will then support larger scale projects.
In both cases, the projects should be led by young people, and delivered by a partnership of arts organisations in collaboration with technology partners.
The budget for phase one TTS.Digital is £50,000 and the maximum award for each project will be fixed at £5,000. They anticipate awarding up to 10 projects at phase one. The budget for phase two TTS.Digital is £400,000. In phase two they are seeking applications for between £50,000 and £100,000.
