Starcatchers is delighted to launch their new Play Fund for artists based in Scotland

The newly-launched Play Fund aims to support artists across all art forms, in the exploration of new work for Scotland’s youngest audiences and to encourage artists to push the boundaries of what an artistic experience for the very young can be.
