Visual Artist and Craft Maker Awards: Aberdeen City

Visual Artist and Craft Maker Awards: Aberdeen City
In partnership with Creative Scotland

The Visual Artist and Craft Makers Awards (VACMA) scheme 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 partnership with Aberdeen City Council.   

This year we will continue to offer fixed bursaries 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
  • Early-career bursaries of £500 (For applicants that have less than 5 years experience outside of education/training, graduated in 2016 or later, or that have not studied art formally but have been practising as an artist for up to 5 years).     

 The fund is open to visual artists and craft makers who can demonstrate a commitment to developing their creative practice and who are living within the local authority area to which they are applying.  

The next deadline will be Tuesday 1 February 2022. The guidelines and application form will be available soon – please check this page for updates.
