'Sometimes words get stuck in my mouth' Ideas Fund project 2015 led by Heather Marshall and Charlie Tonner

Welcome to Ideas Fund, a special one-off project in response to coronavirus to develop interesting artist-led ideas and projects for children, families and schools while supporting artists in the sector with paid work. We would love children and young people to take part, create their own responses and share with their friends.  

We aim to fund a range of projects between now and the end of June that offer something for different age groups and needs from babies to teenagers, including children with additional support needs. We love ideas that we haven't thought of before and we know that artists in Scotland are just the people to come up with that!  

If you have any questions about this project contact Fiona Ferguson, Creative Development Director.

We are currently fundraising for Ideas Fund so we can offer the projects to as many children and young people as we can.  In particular, we will fund materials and support to take part for children who have less access to the arts, the internet and things to do right now. If you would like to help us share/contribute to this fundraiser, here is the link.

We are working with partner organisations to offer more Ideas Fund awards, a huge thank you to The Work Room who have contributed in their ongoing support of dance for young audiences.

Four freelance artists worked with us as the selection panel - Greg Sinclair and Hannah Lavery sat on the 2 April panel, Emma Park and Mariem Omari sat on the panel on 7 May.
