ARTIST ALERT: 5 sponsored places for African artists at the fourth meeting of the Tipping Point Co

A note from the British Council:

The British Council have made available 5 sponsored places for African artists at the fourth meeting of the Tipping Point Conference on Art and Climate Change to be held at Spier Estate, Stellenbosch, Cape Town from 24 -26 May. Sponsorship covers an economy class return airfare, airport transfers, accommodation and meals.

TippingPoint aims to ‘harness the power of the imagination to help stabilise the climate’. They offer a range of activities centred on exposing creative artists to the enormous challenges of climate change; at the heart of this lies a series of meetings involving very high quality, intense dialogue between artists, scientists and others close to the heart of the issue. Applications are hereby invited from African artists and cultural activists engaged or interested in the subject.

Please send your application including your name, contact details, CV and a one page letter motivating why you feel you would like to be involved in this conversation on art and climate change. There is some pressure to finalise the participants by the end of March, so please send your application to: by the end of business on Monday 29 March 2010.
