Support and funding for Craft & Visual Artists in Fife

In partnership with Creative Scotland and Fife Council, Fife Cultural Trust and Fife Contemporary Art & Craft are delighted to launch a new funding and support scheme for craft and visual artists.

The ‘Opportunities’ Grant is available to artists living or based in Fife to support projects with grants of up to £750 available.  The scheme is also supporting three artists, over a 12 month period, with the ‘Next Steps’ and ‘First Steps’ programmes.  These tailored support programmes will focus on personal, professional and creative development for the craft and visual artists and will include 1-1 mentoring.  The bespoke programme is also likely to feature funding for research and travel, skills development and the creation of new work.  One craft artist and one visual artist as well as one emerging artist will take part in the programme in this initial year.
