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.

Particularly at this time with Covid-19 creating uncertainty, we recommend you double-check details of opportunities to ensure they’re still going ahead as originally planned.

Fife Contemporary has also compiled a list of useful sources (craft fairs, awards, open studios’ details), all with web links, as part of our ongoing craft development.
