Go and See Fund

How to apply

We want to make this fund as straight forward as possible so there is no application form or set of questions. Email Fiona Ferguson, Creative Development Director, explaining what you would like to do and what the cost is. Once we have agreed with you what we will cover, you can claim that amount back from us via an Invoice and booking confirmation.

If you are unsure about anything to do with the Go & See Fund, please do get in touch. 

Go & See Fund - covid update

As there are limited opportunities to see live performances at the moment, we will make this funding available to cover the costs of online performances and events.  This could include festival passes, individual tickets and event/discussion sign up costs.

Edinburgh International Children's Festival

We want to make sure performances and delegate events at the Children's Festival are accessible for everyone who works in the sector.  Many of the tickets in 2021 are free, for those that have a charge attached you can claim this back plus any additional costs such as access costs and travel.  To arrange this, contact Fiona Ferguson, Creative Development Director 

Our Go & See Fund is open to everyone that is involved in making things happen in the young audiences sector in Scotland can see high quality performances, including performance makers, production staff, composers, designers, and producers. We cover the costs of tickets in the hope that this removes some of the barriers for freelance staff to see work that inspires them.  If you have access needs that require further funding, do let us know.
