Opportunities and Funding

The following are opportunities and funding sources available to craft and visual artists.  Many are not available to students.  Information can change and you are advised to check before submitting any applications.  Opportunities for Fife-based artists appear first, followed by an alphabetical list.  You can also use the filters on the right hand side to search specific areas.
