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
*Individual projects
*Collaborative projects

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

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
