January 14, 2013

Cultural Awards Programme

Aberdeen City Council Cultural Awards for 2013/4 are now open for application until Friday 8th February 2013. Any voluntary or not for profit organisations or groups who lead the delivery of arts and cultural activity within the city of Aberdeen are eligible to apply. Individuals may apply providing the project is in partnership with a formally structured organisation or group. The funding aims to support the creation of new cultural activity, the development of existing arts organisations and to help increase partnership working through the three investment categories Access. Support and Aspire. Applicants can apply for awards of up to £5,000, £10,000 and over £10,000.

With Aberdeen City Council committing to bidding for the UK City of Culture 2017 title, 2013 will see culture very much at the heart and focus of life in the city. The bidding process is an opportunity to showcase the very best that Aberdeen cultural sector has to offer, as well as increasing participation opportunities to all Aberdeen citizens. In this respect we will be seeking Cultural Award proposals that reflect the levels of engagement, collaboration, opportunity and aspiration that this period could offer towards a more vibrant cultural life for Aberdeen and its citizens.
