Expressive Arts competition for groups and schools

Voluntary Action Fund is launching a £16,000 Competition Fund to enable schools, parent councils, charities and community groups to run arts activities on the theme of “What my *mother means to me…” Each successful applicant can nominate their 2 favourite pieces to be judged at events in March with 6 prizes available.


Organisations, working in Scotland with children aged 10 – 11yrs, can apply for up to £400 to cover activity costs e.g. tutors, sessional workers, art materials, equipment or transport.  Children may choose to work individually, in pairs or small groups to produce their chosen art.  They can choose to: write a 500 word essay, write a poem, make a short film, use photography or produce a piece of artwork.


Applications for funding should be submitted by Monday 16 January 2017.
