Funding

Crowdfunding

Arts and heritage projects funded by the Arts Council and the Heritage Lottery. £125k will be made available for campaigns run by individual artists, and £125k for campaigns run by heritage organisations in Scotland, the NW and the SW. NESTA will be testing two ways of distributing the match pledges. Register to find out more when the fund launches.

  • A ‘top-up model’ where 25% of extra funding is released once a project has managed to achieve 75% of its funding target.
  • A ‘bridge model’ when projects raise up to 25% from the Crowd and then ‘bridge’ funding is released which brings them to 50%. The funding is then conditional on the project going on to reach the final 50%.
