Artists Access to Art Colleges

Website: https://aa2a.org/pages/2018advert

The AA2A project (Artists Access to Art Colleges) is offering over 50 placements, giving artists and designer-makers the opportunity to undertake a period of research or realise a project using art college facilities e.g. workshops, IT facilities, lending library, lecture programme. AA2A schemes aim to benefit students and institutions through their interaction with practising artists. Access is free, for at least 100 hours, between Oct 2018 and April 2019. AA2A’s Support Fund, primarily for artists on low income provides expenses up to £350. Closing dates for applications vary but all fall between 2nd – 21st September 2018. Application packs are only available directly from the host University.

Artists on AA2A schemes run from 2016 to 2017 or before can now reapply. All applicants must have at least one years professional practice. Only MA /PhD students can apply in the same year they graduate. Applicants should be able to work with minimal technical support. Applicants will be asked to suggest ways that students can benefit from their presence. AA2A particularly welcomes applications from artists with disabilities, from culturally diverse backgrounds and non-graduates.
