• IdeasTap Underbelly Award 2014 (ages 16-30, UK residents)


    Each year IdeasTap, in partnership with Underbelly, supports a small number of performing arts projects to appear at an Underbelly venue during the Edinburgh Fringe.

    A total pot of £25,000 is divvied up between 2-6 projects to contribute towards the costs of each production, while Underbelly provides space and mentoring/marketing support.

    The award is for medium-scale productions with at least three performers; it's not a commission, but is instead a contribution towards the costs of presenting a show in Edinburgh. The organisers encourage applications for productions that can tour after Edinburgh, and applicants need to secure match funding and demonstrate the support of another recognised arts organisation to be eligible for the grant.

    For more information and full terms and conditions see the IdeasTap website.
