Want to develop an Art-Science idea, and don’t know where to start?

If you have the desire to develop an art-science project, be it a workshop, event or an exhibition, and you’re not sure where to start, do get in touch with us.

ASCUS is not a funding organisation and we ourselves rely on grants and project funding to deliver our programme, but we regularly work in collaboration with partners, both artists and scientists, to seek funding together or to collaborate on writing/developing art-science proposals as part of larger creative/scientific research bids.

We bring with us over 10 years of experience developing and delivering innovative proposals, using an art-science approach, that strengthen connections between art and science and bring this work to public audiences.

We do this through our public engagement workshop/events programme in ASCUS Lab, Scotland’s first publicly accessible art-science laboratory and through working partners to present the work at exhibitions, science festivals, arts venues and community spaces. Together we handle the management and production of a year round programme as well as providing curatorial support and consultation to project partners.

We are experienced in providing project support, utilising our extensive networks within the Art/Science community in Scotland, UK and internationally to find suitable opportunities to bring art-science work to new audiences. We are also able to provide marketing assistance to share ongoing project activities through both our mailing list as well as our online platforms.

So do get in touch with your idea!

Please email us at if you would like to speak to us about an idea.
