More than 100 projects will share £2.3m in small grants from Creative Scotland's Open Fund.
The programme, which aims to "sustain creative practice in a changing world", is funding works in all areas of the country.
These include 'The Coven and the Drowners', a new Gaelic and Scots novel by playwright Alan Bissett, Artists Into Immersive, a pilot training programme by the National Film and Television School and Glasgow School of Art, and the Freedom of Mind community choir in Falkirk.
The choir's Co-Director Mariot Dallas commented: “This past year has been challenging for everyone - and in particular for those living with poor mental health or social isolation due perhaps to poverty, age, ill health or other personal circumstances."
"This vital funding means we can continue to welcome everyone to the Freedom Of Mind Community Choir, and keep tapping into the transformative potential of singing and music making, boosting well-being for our current and future members."
