Storytelling mini-grants

SCCAN offers storytelling mini-grants to support contributions to the 1000 Better Stories showcasing inspiring stories of community-led climate action though a blog and a podcast. This is one of the ways we encourage a Storyteller Collective – an emerging group of Scotland-based storytellers who are using their creativity to help us imagine a future worth fighting for.

Are you a podcaster, writer, storyteller, videographer interested in sharing positive community climate action and justice stories?

What will we fund?

🎧 Podcast episodes – to be published in 1000 Better Stories

📝 Short stories/non-fiction reportage and creative non-fiction to be published in 1000 Better Stories blog

🛠  Workshops on narrative-based  skills and strategies for climate communication aimed at SCCAN members (preferably resulting in a specific output by participants)

👾 Other formats are also welcome! Short films? A play? A game? Mixed media? Comic? Tell us all about it!


Your proposal must include:

💚 Community-led Climate Action

💚 Social Justice

And at least 1 of these topics:

💚 About/involving SCCAN members

💚 Engaging less heard communities/Giving voice to underrepresented communities (geographically, socially, young people)

Next deadline for 2022

31st December – we will fund 5 projects with applications submitted by this date. You can apply by filling in our submission form here!
