Financial aid offered by arts festival

The Dumfries & Galloway Arts Festival is offering financial support and professional advice to help individuals, promoters and venues to stage quality live events.

Last year, the Dumfries & Galloway Arts Festival initiated a Guarantee Scheme into its programming which enabled 23 promoters, community groups, venues and artists across the region to put on performance art events as part of Scotland’s largest rural multi-art form festival.

The scheme proved so successful, that they have incorporated it into their regular yearly programming and any individual, group or organisation wishing to put on an event in the region during next years festival (20 to 29 May 2016) will be eligible to apply to the guarantee scheme which offers financial support and professional advice for their event.

They encourage proposals from organisations with their own programming ideas. Equally, should you wish to host an event and would like them to recommend touring artists, they will work with you to find a suitable event.

For a chance to be selected for the scheme, please get in touch with Lou on 01387 259627
