Artists Access to Art Colleges (AA2A)
The AA2A project 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. This gives participating artists and makers the opportunity to use equipment which otherwise might not be available to them, as well as benefiting the institution by allowing students to work alongside, and interact with practising artists and makers. In 2021-2022 there are AA2A schemes in 11 host institutions, providing around 40 placements nationally. Each participating institution offers places to four artists or designer-makers. 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 £350 to artists, principally for those on benefits and low income (conditions apply). Although access is free, artists are expected to engage with students and those who apply are asked to propose ways in which their presence will benefit students e.g. by doing a technical demonstration or talking about their work or self-employment. Artists are not expected to do more than three sessions of this type of activity during their placement. Where placements are offered, application deadlines vary (most are in September).
