Applications open for second round of Creative Communities Fund

Applications are once again being accepted for the Perth and Kinross Creative Communities Fund (CCF), following the great success of the first round of funding awards earlier this year.
A total of £30,000 has been made available, of which the CCF will grant up to £1,500 per project.  Applications are welcomed that will deliver creative, inclusive activities, events and projects that:
• showcase the amazing talent of people across Perth and Kinross
• show that culture is for everyone
• gets people involved in cultural activities that may not have tried before
Projects can be a one-off, a series of regular events, a special exhibition, performance or something that reflects your community.  Applications are welcomed from community groups, charities, networks, partnerships, parent teacher associations, residents associations, arts organisations, geographical communities and other communities of interest.
The CCF programme will close either when all of the funds have been allocated or on March 9 2018.  Successful projects must be completed by March 31 2018.
Provost of Perth and Kinross, Dennis Melloy, said: “With this fund we are looking for applications that will bring communities and generations together to celebrate and connect with their local culture; celebrate the diversity of our communities and use digital technology in an innovative or creative way.  We saw a number of fantastic projects and events benefit from the first round of funding and we are keen to keep this momentum going to help us celebrate our cultural diversity. I look forward to hearing about what is delivered in communities throughout Perth and Kinross with this second round.”
The first round of funding awarded in Auchterarder and District included funds towards a defibrillator in Dunning, Aberuthven Village Hub, Auchterarder Town Bus and the Boccia Club.
