ROUND TWO - APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN!

Dumfries and Galloway Council, Live Borders, DG Unlimited and Upland in partnership with Creative Scotland are running a combined Visual Artist and Craft Maker Awards Scheme 2018-2019. The scheme is for individual artists and makers living and working in the Scottish Borders or Dumfries and Galloway. Artists and makers are eligible to apply for awards towards the cost of developing their creative practice.  Applicants must be able to demonstrate a commitment to their work – whether they are at an early or established stage of their practice - and to advancing their skills and ideas.

Funds available

Individual awards between £500 and £1,500 are available, which will assist artists and makers to develop and extend their own personal practice. Applicants are advised to request the appropriate amount required for the project, rather than automatically apply for the maximum grant available. 

Deadline
