About the Programme
- Tuesday 6 February 2024 (5pm)
Visual Artists and Craft Makers across the country are invited to apply for bursaries of up to £750 for their creative development.
Funded by The National Lottery through Creative Scotland in partnership with a range of local authorities and arts agencies across Scotland, the Visual Artist and Craft Maker Awards (VACMA) will support artists at all stages of their career to develop their creative practice. This can include researching a new body of work, experimenting with new materials, attending courses, artistic mentoring, masterclasses and residencies, among other activities.
The VACMA programme offers fixed bursaries of £500 for early-career applicants who have less than 5 years’ experience and £750 for applicants that have been practicing for over 5 years. The bursary schemes are managed locally by the VACMA partners. This year there are 17 schemes covering 26 Local Authority areas.
