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.
