Applications are now open for Round 1 of the (Visual Artist & Craft Maker Awards) VACMA Scheme 2019-20.
If you are considering applying, and want to know more about the scheme and how to improve your application, this event is ideal for you.
Creative Scotland is coming to the Scottish Borders as part of their VACMA roadshow offering advice on how to improve your application to the VACMA scheme. These informal information sessions are designed for visual artists and craft practitioners interested in finding out more about VACMA, a national funding programme of small grants to support visual artists and craft makers in their creative and professional development.
We are pleased to host a VACMA advice session with Stephen Palmer, Creative Scotland who will be available to answer any questions you have relating to the scheme. There will be a short presentation on the scheme from Stephen Palmer from Creative Scotland, followed by 1:1 advice sessions which are pre-bookable. Mary Morrison, CABN, will also be on hand to advise and support applicants.
This is a free event but booking is essential. Tea and coffee will be available, please advise of any allergies and dietary requirements. Individual advice sessions will be allocated on a first come first served basis. After booking you will be contacted by CABN to confirm and allocate your advice session time slot.

Note – after the presentation to the whole group, if you are waiting on site for your advice session slot, do take the time to visit the exhibitions at Old Gala House.
