We are operating our memberships on a 'pay what you can' basis and have three pricing tiers (£20, £40, £60) depending on the level of income you and your family receive. The 'standard income' pricing of £40 reflects the industry standard for artist membership schemes and we also have a lower and a higher priced option. No evidence of your income is required, we trust that you will pay the amount you feel you can afford in relation with your circumstances. The income generated from our memberships go towards website and marketing, venue hire for our annual members exhibitions, events and workshops and any profits go toward funding creative opportunities and assisted childcare for Scottish mothers who are facing hardship.
