Creative groups in Aberdeen are being urged to claim a share of a £180,000 council cultural grant.

Last year, Creative Funding allocated £184,000 awards supporting 40 different projects across the city involving over 300 volunteers.

This year’s programme gives individuals the opportunity of applying for up to £2,000 while not-for-profit organisations can apply for up to £15,000.

Council cultural spokeswoman Marie Boulton said: “We are committed to supporting the development and delivery of arts, culture and creativity in the city.

“We recognise both the intrinsic value of being creative and the social, educational and economic benefits of cultural activity and events.

“That is why we are proud to continue to fund individuals and projects that do so much to enrich the city”.

Among last year’s recipients was writer Jo Gilbert who received funding to develop the Doric Poetry Slam and Bon Accord Civic Heritage Association who were able to make the film ‘No Ladies Please’ as a result.

Individuals and groups have until 5pm on Friday, April 26 to submit their applications.

Guidelines and applications can be obtained from the council’s website.

The council is also seeking to invite six members of the public to join as volunteer panel members to help decide on which applications should receive funding.

Anyone residing in Aberdeen over 18 with an interest in culture is welcome to register their interest by clicking on the following link:

Completed forms should then be sent to by noon on Monday, April 15.
