Funding Opportunity for Companies Going to Edinburgh

Edinburgh Fund from IdeasTap

deadline: 29 November 2010

Despite the spending cuts, independent arts charity IdeasTap is continuing to support emerging creative talent with the launch of its latest £30,000 fund: The Edinburgh Fund.

The £30,000 fund is available to members of promising theatre companies
aged between 16 and 25 hoping to attend the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2011.
An established platform for launching new talent, performing at the Fringe can
be a huge financial risk – IdeasTap are offering young performers the chance to
showcase their talent without this risk.

Last year’s Edinburgh Fund winners
were Suffolk-based HighTide, who went on to win a Fringe First for their
production of Lidless; and Scottish theatre company Tortoise in a Nutshell with
their show The Last Miner.

Hoping to recreate the success of last year’s
awards, IdeasTap is currently offering two awards of £10,000 to the theatre
companies that they feel show the most promise. The remaining £10,000 will be
used for delegate support at the festival, and for smaller grants that will be
awarded in spring 2011. The Ideas Fund not only offers monetary support, but
also includes a mentoring scheme for all winners. 

The IdeasTap Edinburgh is
now open to submissions, and will close on 29 November 2010. For more details

This will be perfect for us at Bridgend as we really want to go but find the money situation hard to overcome and even 1.618 could apply with our young performers. Thanks x
