SCAF's Mission Statement
Founded by Sue Armstrong in 2016, Scott Creative Arts Foundation was started with three distinct aims at its core:
1. To preserve, collate and present to the wider general public, the life work of Michael and Eileen Scott
2. To encourage and support emerging artists of all ages, ethnicity and background in their creative development
3. To explore the relationship between human consciousness and creativity
Having been friends and colleagues with the Scott’s for over 15 years, Sue worked with Michael Scott throughout the last year of his life to produce a clear vision for the future of SCAF. Michael and Eileen’s legacy is so much more than a collection of paintings and words: it is a journey of discovery and growth for anyone who has ever been interested in human creativity.
Our aspiration is to create a purpose-built centre of excellence to reflect the creative ambition of our benefactors and supporters in using art as a vehicle to inspire creative thinking and artistic collaboration within the community.
SCAF hold an annual arts award for emerging artists within the Yorkshire region. Each year 10 proposals are chosen by our panel of judges and the shortlisted artists are invited to exhibit at The Art House within the heart of North Yorkshire.LEARN MORE
