Artists Access to Art Colleges (AA2A)

Website: https://aa2a.biz/

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 2019-2020 it is expected that there will be at least 14 host institutions that will have AA2A schemes, providing around 58 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). Deadlines vary between Colleges but all deadlines are in September. There may be different eligibility criteria you must meet for each institution.

Expires: September 30, 2019
