The following funding is available for each visual arts organisation/gallery partner:
£6,000 – to support project work with young people (x 3 projects)
Note: freelancers contracted to projects must be paid at Scottish Artist Union rates.
£2,000 – to support a paid trainee position for a young person aged 16-25. (x 3) The trainees will work alongside the artists and young people to deliver the projects in each organisation. They will be involved in all aspects of the project delivery including planning meetings, preparation, delivery of workshops, marketing, set up and clear up, presentation/showcase/exhibitions, trips and evaluation of the project.
Partner organisations will need to commit to providing £2,000 of in-kind support for ART Evolution.
ART Evolution project activity will take place between September – December 2021. However, given the ongoing uncertainty around the COVID-19 pandemic, they are aware that some flexibility may be necessary, e.g. in the event of any significant changes to government guidelines that might impact project delivery.
Evaluation and Project Dissemination

A dedicated evaluator will support ART Evolution funded partners to develop a robust project evaluation framework.
Engage Scotland will spread the impact of the work through wider sharing, networking and training opportunities around youth arts for the visual arts sector in Scotland.
