Social Investment Scotland is pleased to partner with Creative Scotland once again to run three online workshops aimed at looking at the challenges faced by creative and cultural third sector enterprises as they recover from the fallout of COVID-19 and begin to look to the future. These sessions will last 90 minutes and are free to attend.
In addition, organisations who have attended these sessions will then be able to apply for 1-2-1 support alongside a small Investment Readiness Grant to help progress their plans through consultancy support, which would help in accessing social investment (application process will apply).
This is ideal for organisations in the creative and cultural third sector who want to pivot or develop a new trading model to recover from the challenges presented by COVID-19. Details will be given across these workshops and only course participants are eligible.
