May-Day - Why Creative Artists Should Get Up Early

The story goes that milkmaids would wash their faces in the morning dew on 1st May, to make themselves beautiful and attract a handsome mate.

Forget the mythology!  Welcome to 2017.

Nowadays, we get up early to look for grant funding opportunities and chances to develop our careers in new and innovative ways.  In Scotland, Open Project Funding from Creative Scotland is an attractive continuous programme for people in the creative sector.  Obviously, there are terms and conditions, and the waiting time is longer if you're seeking larger amounts of funding.

So, if you got up early this May morning, why not put your time to good use and take a look at the Creative Scotland website?  The early bird catches the worm.  (Some sayings never go out of fashion!)  From the website:-
"Open Project Funding is a continuous programme, meaning that you can make an application at any time throughout the year and there are no deadlines. You will however need to allow enough time between when you apply and when you plan to start your project to allow Creative Scotland to undertake the assessment of your proposal."  Visit the website:-
