anam creative was set up in 2020 by Michiel Turner as an online space for him and his peers to collaborate on music projects together remotely; this was funded by Nurturing Talent – Time to Shine Fund. The following year, Michiel received a grant from Creative Scotland's Sustaining Creative Development Fund to run a five-month-long 'arts collaboration' project commissioning new work between him, three other musicians, two visual artists and one writer. 

In 2022, anam creative established themselves as a Community Interest Company with a mission to support emerging creatives with paid opportunities. It is now collectively run with other artists from the previous 'arts collaboration' project.

Since 2022, anam has hosted nine sold-out live music and arts events showcasing some of the most innovative young artists in Scotland right now.

We are currently funded by Creative Scotland, Youth Music and First Port.
