AAS have partnered with a range of organisations over a number of years to support delivery of professional development events. Highlights of these are shown below.
AAS and Scottish Artists Union Roadshows – 2013/2014Professional development programme across four events.
Convince Me: The Art of Making Compelling Applications event – June 2014How to make successful applications for funding, exhibitions, residencies or other projects
Your Brand and Online Selling & Your Brand and Social Media events – Spring 2014Inspiring Scotland-based makers to make the most of their brand and support the successful online selling of their work and use of social media.
We also surveyed the craft sector in summer 2014 to find out the specific needs of makers based in Scotland, to inform our future activity and ensure we were and are representing the needs of makers accurately. Since 2020, we have used our monthly members’ coffee mornings to do the same.
