faae0f3351355ba41b704c15246da9e4ASCUS has teamed up with TippingPoint and have been allocated three ASCUS places for Scottish artists to attend their next major event in Oxford. The focus this year will be energy, in the context of climate change. The artistic focus for this event will be stories and narrative, though the concept of stories is broad – performance in various forms, visual representations – there are many ways of telling a story. TippingPoint will also be supporting new commissions to a total of £20,000 each for the creation of new stories on the subject.  Full information about this opportunity can be found on the ASCUS and TippingPoint websites.

We believe this is a major opportunity for a wide variety of artists to bring new content and challenges into their work – and to spend an enormously stimulating couple of days.

To make an application to be present you simply need to write to us setting out two things: firstly a summary of your own work, in not more than 200 words, together with links to any relevant web-based material; secondly an outline of why you would like to attend, in not more than 100 words. An accompanying CV is also welcome, but not a requirement. Send this to by 5pm on Friday 8 August 2014. Successful applicants will be contacted by the end of August.
