Funding Applications

This page is to record any funding proposals that have been made by or for 57 North. We have a collated list of funding bodies on the Funding Bodies page.


Funding applications we are looking at.

Visual Artist and Craft Maker Awards: Aberdeen City

This is aimed more at individuals than organisations, but might be a possibility, see [1] and [2].

The Robertson Trust - Wee Grants for Wee Groups

Eligible organisations can apply for up to £2,000 and projects/services can be fully funded. I'm not sure we fit the funding strands as-is, but there may be potential to get funding for specific programs we could run. They have some case studies, which is useful for examples of things they've funded to-date


Funding applications that are pending a decision from the funding body.


Funding applications that are completed, either successfully or unsuccessfully.

Creative funding awards 2018/19

Documents delivered Friday 20th of July 2018. Application work done by AndyG, Dococassi and Hibby.

Supporting docs

Applications and support material are reviewed by the independent panel. Funding decision after the September 1st.


Outcome: Unsuccessful


  • Andy: This was the first funding application we've done (I think) and it was completed in a very tight time scale. Given more time we could have attended one of the funding workshops, which would have helped. The the application was done as a collaborative google doc, which seemed a good way to write it, except I think I didn't attached the final-final version to the submission. I think it'll be a good foundation for future applications, combined with the helpful feedback.
