The Association was established to promote and protect fine arts and crafts in order to contribute to the cultural and socio-economic development of the country. Currently its membership base is over 200 nationwide. Since the establishment of VAAM, Cultural Support Scheme Project has supported it to open regional chapters including in the eastern region. VAAM accomplished a number of skills in capacity building interventions as well as organizational capacity. Such trainings includes business management and marketing.
