AA2A placements

Date uploaded: August 21, 2013

The AA2A project (Artists Access to Art Colleges) are offering over 100 placements for artists and designer makers which give them the opportunity to undertake a period of research or realise a project using art college facilities eg. workshops, IT facilities, lending library, and lecture programme.  AA2A schemes aim to benefit students and institutions through their interaction with practising artists.

  • Access is free, for at least 100 hours, between Oct 2013 and April 2014.
  • It is hoped that AA2A can provide a grant of up to £220 for artists who need this to undertake the scheme.
  • Closing dates for applications vary but all are in September 2013.
  • Artists on AA2A schemes run from 2011 to 2012 or before can now reapply.
  • Applicants must have at least one year’s professional practice.
  • Applicants should be able to work with minimal technical support.
