Visual Artist and Craft Maker Awards (VACMA) 2017 - Round 2

Our Council Arts Development Team, in partnership with Creative Scotland, are launching the 2017 Visual Artist and Craft Makers Awards, round 2 for creative practitioners.

The awards scheme will provide awards of between £500 and £1500 to visual artists and craft makers resident in Aberdeenshire.

Funds can help towards activities that are integral to the practitioner’s personal and professional development such as:

  • the immediate costs of researching
  • creating and presenting new work 
  • advancing skills, technical ability and ideas

You can book information sessions in Fraserburgh, Banff and Banchory to discuss the scheme in person. Visit the Eventbrite website to book a half hour session.
