As a strategic national infrastructure organisation, BEMIS aims to empower the diverse Ethnic Minority third sector. We are committed to promoting inclusion, democratic active citizenship, recognition of diversity, human rights education, and wider representation, as well as effecting a proactive role in maintaining and enhancing pathways to influence government policy in regards to equality and human rights at local, Scottish, UK and EU levels.
Celtic Connections in the Community
BEMIS Scotland in partnership with Unison, Celtic Connections and the Scottish Government are delighted to offer a new opportunity for Glasgow’s communities to programme a bespoke Celtic Connections in the Community celebratory event, with grants available of up to £1,500.
As part of your successfully funded event:
- Celtic Connections will send an artist to your celebration to perform a 30-minute set, and to host a musical workshop for a group of performers.
- This group will then perform a short set at the ‘BEMIS and Unison present Les Amazonas D’Afrique & special guests’ event in the Tramway Theatre on Saturday 25th of January.
- Please note that we expect the programme to be significantly over-subscribed. In 2020 we will fund 5 events across Glasgow.
Applications close on Friday 25th October 2019.
