FORTH VALLEY VACMA AWARDS
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 Stirling Council, and Falkirk Community Trust. The Forth Valley VACMA awards will include Stirling, Falkirk and Clacks. 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 or working or maintaining a studio space within the Local Authority area to which they are applying.
The next deadline will be Tuesday 1st February 2022. The guidelines and application form will be available shortly – please check this page for updates.
