During the 1985-86 Ethiopia famine, Robert Scott spearheaded and organized an urgent fundraising campaign with a group of  accomplished  Albertan artists to support a massive relief effort in East Africa. Over sixty artists donated a piece of their work to this campaign that raised, with the matching grant from the provincial and federal government, over $ 250,000.00 for our selected executing partner. The partner, an experienced Canadian Non-Governmental Agency, delivered a program that addressed both the immediate relief needs and long-term prevention and development needs. Today, the beneficiaries of this program have gained significant degree of recovery and self-sufficiency. Equally important, this campaign and the artists efforts have increased the Canadian public awareness of the  interdependent world that we live in, and the root causes of the African famine that are largely man made.

In 1987, Robert Scott was invited by the city of Barcelona to attend a Triangle Workshop of International and Spanish artists.  The purpose of the workshop was to stimulate visual art activity in the area. It was in reaction to the repressive legacy of the Franco administration of Spain. The workshop was successful in that many young artists were encouraged.  New galleries began to open and Catalonia artists were able to again hang their work in both public and commercial galleries.


In 1990, Scott was invited by the Thupelo Art Project and the Federation Union of Black Artists to lead a workshop at the Alpha Training Centre: Broederstroom, South Africa. This was a multi-racial workshop of international artists.  Workshops in South Africa play a key role in education for Black artists due to the lack of multi-racial art schools.
