We offer annual memberships to artists across the whole of Scotland! Membership is open to Scottish students, artists based in Scotland and any artists that have studied at a Scottish institution. We have four different memberships, allowing flexibility and specific output with your involvement with Saltspace.
We have an annual turnover from Sep - Aug. Anyone who signs up from June 2021 will automatically have their membership until Aug 2022.
We realise the arts sector and artists are suffering and struggling due to the Covid19 pandemic and we would like to take that into consideration and offer something positive!
As we are a non-profit co-operative we do rely on contributions to help meet our running costs. All funds from membership goes straight back into helping us run our co-operative! We hope this opportunity of a mutual relationship through membership will offer both artists and us as an organisation a beneficial relationship during precarious times!
