Stephen Palmer, Visual Arts Officer, Creative Scotland, will introduce the Visual Artist and Craft Maker Awards scheme and will also speak about Creative Scotland and its funding more generally. At Taigh Chearsabhagh, Louise Cook: Shoreline Stoneware will speak about the impact of her VACMA grants in 2011 and 2015 on her creative development as a ceramicist. Each of the presentations will be followed by a series of 1-2-1 10min pre-booked advice sessions with Stephen Palmer, targeted particularly at individuals considering applying for funding to VACMA but also covering other Creative Scotland funding for Visual Artists/Craft Makers.

The Visual Artist and Craft Makers Awards (#VACMAScotland) are a programme of small grants schemes with a range of local authorities and art agencies across Scotland to support visual artists and craft makers in their creative and professional development with awards of between £500 and £1500.  In 2018, Comhairle nan Eilean Siar will continue to work in partnership with Creative Scotland to support individual artists and makers who live and work in the Outer Hebrides.  For further info see: https://www.cne-siar.gov.uk/leisure-sport-and-culture/arts-and-culture/arts-and-culture-funding/
