£14,715 for Creatorspace Project
A project at Carnoustie Library will benefit from financial support through an initiative of the SNP Scottish Government.
£14,715 has been awarded to create a space on the upper floor that will exhibit work by local artists and creative clubs. This space will focus on the provision of tools, equipment and resources to foster artistic design and creativity.
It is one of eight new library projects across Scotland sharing £106,686 of funding from the SNP government’s Public Library Improvement Fund (PLIF). Others include the introduction of a comprehensive library outreach offer in East Lothian, a digital project focusing on celebrating Dundee’s Maritime Pasts and Future, and High Life Highland’s sensory project – which aims to engage with those with autism and dementia among many others.
This is the announcement of the first round of recipients of the PLIF, with a second round opening on 10 January 2024 and closing on 7 February 2024.
The Fund is an annual £450,000 administered by the Scottish Library and Information Council on behalf of the Scottish Government. It sees £200,000 given to support creative, sustainable and innovative public library projects throughout Scotland.
