Grants for fes­ti­val pro­jects

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Two small grants schemes are avail­able for res­i­dents in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang who want to take part in this year’s To Ab­sent Friends fes­ti­val.

The an­nual fes­ti­val of­fers a chance to re­mem­ber those who have died through sto­ries, cel­e­bra­tions and acts of rem­i­nis­cence.

In pre­vi­ous years events at the fes­ti­val have in­cluded con­certs, mu­sic nights, ex­hi­bi­tions, the­atre and spo­ken word per­for­mances. It takes place across Scot­land from Novem­ber 1-7.

Grant ap­pli­ca­tions are wel­comed from any group that wants to hold an event for the fes­ti­val.

Par­tic­u­larly en­cour­aged are cre­ative and in­no­va­tive ideas that pro­vide pub­lic op­por­tu­ni­ties for sto­ry­telling and/or re­mem­brance.

The max­i­mum sum avail­able is £350 and the dead­line for ap­pli­ca­tions is Wed­nes­day, Au­gust 23.

More de­tails and in­for­ma­tion on how to ap­ply are avail­able at www. goodlifedeath­grief.org. uk or con­tact Robert Pea­cock on 0131 272 2735 or robert@ pal­lia­tive­carescot­land. org.uk.
