Collaborations at the ready: applications for this year’s Community Ideas Fund are open!

Do you have an idea you’ve always wanted to try? Looking for some financial support to test a creative collaboration? Maybe you could help bring a project to life with your skills and you’re keen to make a positive impact?

The Community Ideas Fund is an annual opportunity for supporters of our Amps network to team up, develop a project, create a pitch and then share their idea with the wider Amps community at our Amps Forum in April. The network will then vote for one project to receive our annual award – this year’s fund is £2,500!

Your idea can take whatever form you’d like. It could be a performance, an art trail, a community workshop, a transformed space, a game, an event, research, or something else that inspires and connects people. It just needs to involve two or more Amps working on an exciting new collaboration that will result in a positive social impact in Dundee.

Whether you’re a designer, artist, performer, maker or someone who supports and champions creativity in the city, we want to hear your ideas! The fund exists to spark and resource projects that have creativity and experimentation at their heart – take a look at previous recipients for some inspiration.
