VAI Clinics
Get help in 20-minute one-on-one meetings with experts in their field. Whether you want to know where to start after a gap in your practice, would like to know how you can take your career to the next stage, or would just like someone to review your work or your website and give you feedback, Clinics offer focused time to do this.

Feel free to send on some information to us to make the most of your session, such as images of your work, exhibition proposals, links to website, or any applications you are currently working on that you would like a second opinion on.

How to apply for funding:

Among the many challenges that exist in the career of every artist is the need for funding. This clinic will allow you to get one-to-one advice on questions related to funding applications and is a follow up to the webinar from earlier in the day. 

As we all know funding is a hugely competitive place and making the best application possible is key in standing a chance of making a successful application. It may seem overly complex at first sight, but using some simple best practice steps can remove some of the fear.
