Visual Artist and Craft Maker Awards (VACMA) 2017

Our Council Arts Development Team, in partnership with Creative Scotland, are launching the 2017 Visual Artist and Craft Makers Awards 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 or advancing skills
  • technical ability and ideas
