We are pleased to offer two bursary places to SUPERLUX members to travel to Dublin to attend PLASTIK Festival of Artists’ Moving Image, which takes place from 24 – 26 March 2017.
PLASTIK is a unique platform for the engagement and appreciation of artists’ moving image in Ireland. The festival offers an innovative, accessible and creative platform for the presentation of artists’ film and video, with a focus on discursive events and the cinema as exhibition space. The bi-annual festival, developed in collaboration with LUX (London), is presented in partnership with the Irish Film Institute, Temple Bar Gallery + Studios, and IADT Dublin, and is made possible through the generous support of the Arts Council.
The bursary will cover 2 nights’ accommodation in Dublin, return flights from Scotland, complimentary tickets to all festival screenings at The Irish Film Institute and access to the festival talks and events programme. The full programme will be announced on 10 February.
Following the festival, bursary recipients are required to produce a short response reflecting on their experience to be published on the SUPERLUX website.
To apply for this bursary opportunity, please complete the form on the SUPERLUX website explaining why you are interested in attending the festival and how this will benefit your current research and practice in 150 words or less. SUPERLUX members must be based in Scotland in order to be eligible.
The deadline for applications is 10am on Tuesday 28 February. We will inform both successful bursary holders by Wednesday 1 March.
