Visual Art and Craft Maker Awards 2023
The deadline to apply is Tuesday 7th February 2023
The Visual Artist and Craft Makers Awards (VACMA) are a programme of small grants schemes with a range of local authorities and art agencies across Scotland to support Scotland-based visual artists and craft makers in their creative and professional development.
Established by Creative Scotland, these partnerships give support at a local level and work with local panels to offer funds to support practitioners at all stages of their career who have demonstrated a commitment to their work and in developing their practice through new work, new skills or new opportunities.
- The VACMA scheme offers two levels of bursaries and you should apply for the one that best suits your situation:
Bursaries of £750 (For applicants that have been practicing for over 5 years, regardless of whether they have gone through formal education or not).
- Early-career bursaries of £500 (For applicants that have less than 5 years’ experience outside of education/training, graduated in 2017 or later, or that have not studied art formally but have been practising as an artist for up to 5 years). They hold deadlines in October and February.
