Apply: Visual Artist and Craft Maker Awards

The Visual Artist and Craft Makers Awards (VACMA) are a programme of small grants schemes delivered with a range of local authorities and art agencies across Scotland to support Scotland-based visual artists and craft makers in their creative 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.

Applicants can apply for fixed bursaries of £500 and £750.

Applicants should apply to their local scheme using the application form for that area. Links to each scheme are provided below.

There are two deadlines:

  • Autumn: 5pm, Tuesday 26 October 2021 
  • Winter: 5pm, Tuesday 1 February 2022 

Please check with your local scheme to see if they are running both deadlines.
