The Visual Artists Association has introduced an exhibition and scholarship fund of £50,000. Created to support early career artists to develop their arts businesses, The VAA International Exhibition & Scholarship Prize, launched in Summer 2022, aims to benefit emerging and re-emerging artists. This will be achieved by increasing artists’ international exposure, whilst raising funds for VAA artist education programmes.
The winners of this prize will receive a three-month artist programme. The programme will be delivered online from January 2023 and includes the VAA Artists Momentum Programme; 6-Weeks Online Workshops. These will take the form of group sessions, that allow peer-to-peer feedback and a private chat community. This allows artists to share ideas and gain support.
