Visual Arts & Crafts Makers Awards 2021
About the Programme
Visual Artist and Craft Maker Award (VACMA) offers small grants to visual artists and craft makers for their creative development at all stages of their career. These awards are supported by Creative Scotland through funding from the National Lottery.
In place of usual VACMA awards, this year fixed bursaries are available in recognition of the ongoing impacts of COVID-19 on individual artists and makers. The VACMA scheme offers two levels of bursaries:
- Bursaries of £750
- Bursaries of £500 for New Graduates / Emerging Artists. Applicants must have less than 5 years’ experience outside of education or training or to have graduated in 2015 or later.
The fund is open to Visual Artists /Craft Makers who can demonstrate a commitment to developing their creative practice and are living or working or maintaining a studio space within the Local Authority area to which you are applying.
There are two deadlines:
- Autumn: 5pm, Tuesday 26 October 2021
- Winter: 5pm, Tuesday 1 February 2022
. For more details, please visit the VACMA website.
