Sponsorship of the Arts

Created on: 29 May 2024

The EIS is proud to support arts projects that benefit young people across Scotland, and allocates a percentage of all subscription income to this important area of work.

The Sponsorship of The Arts fund was established by the EIS Council so that the EIS can support arts projects in schools in Scotland.

Over 50 different projects and organisations have benefited from EIS Sponsorship of the Arts funding in recent years, including: Royal Scottish National Orchestra; Scottish Opera; Edinburgh International Book Festival; Orkney Folk Festival; Celtic Connections; Glasgow Music Festival; The Benedetti Foundation; Children's Classic Concerts; and National Theatre.

Funding for the arts has been an area that has been increasingly squeezed. While the EIS cannot hope to plug the gaps left by under-funding by government, we are committed to providing whatever support that we can to arts projects that benefit schools and young people.
