Go and See Fund

We run a Go & See Fund which is open all year round to support makers, designers and producers to see the most exciting and relevant theatre and dance for young audiences happening in Scotland - a chance to go and see the shows you think can help influence and inspire your next project.

We also create bespoke packages at Edinburgh International Children’s Festival for artists to see work and take part in our delegate programme.

What we can fund:

  • the cost of tickets to see performances in Scotland
  • travel costs within Scotland where appropriate (especially for artists living outwith the Central Belt)

What we can’t fund:

  • international visits
  • applications from artists living outwith Scotland
  • applications from artists who have no proven interest in theatre and dance for young audiences

To apply, please email us your request, including the name of the productions you would like to attend and how you think it will inspire your work and help your practice. Please also include total potential costs.

"I’m asking myself questions, I’ve observed new art forms, I’ve sat amongst children and teenagers and been able to gauge their responses to work, I’ve met artists, directors, playwrights and choreographers…. as an artist myself I feel re-inflated – a breath of fresh air!"
