Ten artists and community-based projects have been chosen to feature this specially commissioned film to highlight the breadth and depth of National Lottery arts funding in Scotland.
From Birnam Arts in Perthshire to the winner of the 2013 Scottish Album of the Year musician, RM Hubbert, they all share their life-changing stories in this new film produced to thank National Lottery players for their support.
These 10 featured projects received grants ranging in size from £3,000 to Sianna Bruce, an aerial dancer from Dundee, to £93,211 to Live Music Now Scotland to perform in care homes, hospices, day centres, special schools, and secure units. Latest figures reveal that over £33.7 million of National Lottery funding was allocated last year (15/16) to Scottish arts projects by Big Lottery Fund, Creative Scotland, and Heritage Lottery Fund.
Creative Scotland, Scotland’s national development agency for arts, screen and creative industries, Creativity Matters campaign highlights the importance of the Creative Industries which contribute £3.7 billion to the Scottish economy each year, supporting 71,800 jobs.
