Aberdeen Craft Makers Award Scheme

A scheme to support the work of resident artists and encourage innovative professional practice in contemporary crafts in Aberdeen city.

Awards are available from £500 up to maximum of £1,500.

Whilst applications can be for the full amount, this may not automatically be awarded. The panel may offer an amount other than that requested, dependant on how well the application meets key criteria, value for money and in context of demand for funds from other applicants.

Selected crafts makers will:

  • be profiled through the council’s cultural promotions;
  • where appropriate be matched up with city centre cultural organisations for additional support and mentoring.
