Our ticket fund was launched in 2021 and exists to support independent artists in Scotland to attend visually led work. We are particularly focused on helping artists to overcome financial, access, care or other barriers to attending work, but any artist in Scotland is eligible for this support. We can financially support the cost of your attendance at a wide range of productions, screenings and festivals.

What our funding can cover:

  • Ticket Costs
  • Travel Costs (if further than 45 miles)
  • Childcare Costs
  • Access Costs

Artists must be:

  • An emerging or established professional working in the arts
  • Based in Scotland

Productions, events and screenings must be:

  • Clearly within Puppet Animation Scotland’s remit of puppetry, visual theatre or animated film
  • In Scotland
  • A professional production

How to Apply

Funds will be available on a discretionary basis up to a maximum amount in each financial year. In certain cases we may be able to support only some of your requested costs, subject to the volume of demand and the resources available. There is no application form to access this fund. Simply email [email protected] at least 2 weeks in advance of the date of the production, and detail your name and artistic discipline, the show, date and time, and which costs you would like us to cover. We will endeavour to let you know within 1 week if we are able to support your costs.
