Grants for festival projects
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.
