Opportunities FAQs & Criteria  

 

What do you consider to be an Opportunity for makers?  

The opportunities listed on the Craft Community were accepted because they will help a Scotland-based maker to develop a sustainable creative and business practice. This can take the form of funding, bursaries, awards or grants, jobs, commissions, submission requests for exhibitions, fairs, markets, shops or other craft events, and business training. We won’t list any opportunities that we consider unfair or exploitative of makers.  

  

What kind of opportunities do you accept?  

Craft Scotland can only list events that are suitable for Scottish-based makers working in our accepted craft disciplines.  

  

Do you list unpaid positions? 

Craft Scotland is committed to ensuring that makers are paid fairly and appropriately for their time and effort. We recognise the value of volunteering in the arts and that there is value in makers having access to relevant work experience, shadowing and mentoring opportunities (where it is offered and arranged properly). We will only approve voluntary opportunities if they are upfront about being unpaid and offer a genuine opportunity to gain experience or collaborate. Craft Scotland is a Living Wage employer and we adhere to the Scottish Artist Union’s guidelines on fair pay. We hope our partners, supporters and audiences will follow our example.
