The AA2A project (Artists Access to Art Colleges) is a national set of schemes, providing visual artists and designer makers with the opportunity to undertake a period of research or realise a project, using workshop and supporting facilities in fine art and design departments of Higher and Further Education institutions. AA2A schemes aim to benefit students and institutions through their interaction with practising artists. In 2016-17 there will be 20 institutions in England hosting AA2A schemes. Each participating institution normally offers places to four artists or designer-makers. Typical supporting facilities available to artists and makers include college lending libraries, access to lecture programmes, life rooms, etc. Each artist/maker has at least 100 hours access, which they can use between October and April. AA2A endeavours to provide support of up to £300 to artists, principally for those on benefits associated with low income. Closing dates for applications vary but are between 1 and 22 September 2016.
