Scottish dance, theatre, & music artists invited to apply for funding to present work at Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2019
Applications are now open for Made in Scotland 2019 - the annual curated showcase of music, theatre and dance taking place as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Made in Scotland celebrates the wealth and diversity of work being produced in Scotland, and through being presented at the world’s largest arts festival provides a range of artists and companies working in this country with invaluable international profile.
209 shows have been supported at the Fringe thanks to the programme since it first took place in 2009 from the likes of Scottish Ensemble, Indepen-dance, Starcatchers/Curious Seed, 21 Common and Birds of Paradise / National Theatre of Scotland.
