Our Place Fund

The Glasgow 2018 European Championships is a moment of great inspiration and achievement. We want to use this opportunity to celebrate local cultural projects and arts activity.

The Festival 2018 Our Place Fund has £120,000 available for community groups to arrange cultural events and arts activities in their own area before and during the Glasgow 2018 European Championships.

£60,000 has been allocated for cultural events and arts activity within Glasgow, and will be distributed through a participatory budgeting process. People across Glasgow will vote to choose which events are funded. An additional £60,000 has been devolved to other host local authorities across Scotland for distribution locally.
