Opportunity: Visual Artist and Craft Maker Awards (VACMA) – Edinburgh 2021/22

The VACMA: Edinburgh 2021/22 funding scheme for visual artsts/craft makers is now open.

The City of Edinburgh Council, in partnership with Creative Scotland, offer funding opportunities to visual artists / craft makers who can demonstrate a commitment to developing their creative practice and are living or working or maintaining a studio space within Edinburgh.

Funds available
In place of the usual VACMA awards, this year fixed bursaries are available in recognition of the ongoing impacts of COVID-19 on individual artists and makers. The scheme acknowledges the limitations placed on individual practices and the opportunities that are currently available. The VACMA scheme offers two levels of bursaries and you should apply for the one that best suits your situation.

  • Artist/maker bursaries of £750
  • Early career bursaries of £500 (For applicants that have less than five 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 five years)

The application form, VACMA guidance and the Equalities Monitoring Form are available to download from the website.

Creative Carbon Scotland is a partnership of arts organisations working to put culture at the heart of a sustainable Scotland. We believe cultural and creative organisations have a significant influencing power to help shape a sustainable Scotland for the 21st century.

In 2011 we worked with partners Festivals Edinburgh, the Federation of Scottish Threatre and Scottish Contemporary Art Network to support over thirty arts organisations to operate more sustainably.

We are now building on these achievements and working with over 70 cultural organisations across Scotland in various key areas including carbon management, behavioural change and advocacy for sustainable practice in the arts.

Our work with cultural organisations is the first step towards a wider change. Cultural organisations can influence public behaviour and attitudes about climate change through:

Changing their own behaviour;
Communicating with their audiences;
Engaging the public’s emotions, values and ideas.
