Professional Development

CABN supports the professional development of creatives by providing and sharing information on opportunities, training and business advice, and funding and grants.

In this section, as well as providing information on professional development support delivered by CABN, we’ve also provided links to training and business support and funding from other organisations – both in the Scottish Borders and beyond. Our Opportunities section includes current offerings including residencies, exhibitions and jobs. For details of any current professional development events CABN is hosting please visit the News & Events page on our website.

Since 2009, CABN has managed a Visual Artist and Craft Maker Awards scheme (VACMA), offering assistance to businesses (latterly across both the Scottish Borders and Dumfries & Galloway). Information on our current scheme is available in the Funding & Grants section. To view images of work supported through the VACMA scheme please view the Spotlight VACMA section of the CABN website.
