We are now accepting entries for the 2019 VAS : Inches Carr Mentorning Award!

The award is £5000 for a maker, plus an additional £2000 for a mentor whose discipline and/or professional experience would add value to the winners practise. The purpose is to encourage and mentor makers to develop their practice to a higher level, consider innovation and introducing new materials or techniques to their existing practise.

Shortlisted artists will exhibit a work or a body of work in a dedicated section of Visual Arts Scotland’s next Annual Exhibition at the Royal Scottish Academy, 28 January – 22 February 2019. The winner will be announced during the exhibition and will be invited to develop a new body of work in conjunction with their mentor to be exhibited at the subsequent VAS annual exhibition.
