Visual Artists and Craft Makers Award scheme (VACMA)

The scheme is run by our Arts team in partnership with Creative Scotland and provides awards of between £500 and £1500. 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 or advancing skills, technical ability and ideas.
