Arts Awards support imaginative and experimental arts projects that investigate biomedical science.

DEADLINE: December 12, 2011

From the Wellcome Trust:

Large awards (over £30 000)
[Arts Awards program] is currently seeking proposals for large arts projects. If you have an idea for a project that you think might be suitable then please contact one of our Arts Advisers ( arts@wellcome.ac.uk) with a one-page summary at any time before 16 December 2011. We will get back in touch to discuss whether it is something that can be taken forward.

Arts Awards support imaginative and experimental arts projects that investigate biomedical science.

The scheme aims to:

  • stimulate interest, excitement and debate about biomedical science through the arts
  • examine the social, cultural, and ethical impact of biomedical science
  • support formal and informal learning
  • encourage new ways of thinking
  • encourage high quality interdisciplinary practice and collaborative partnerships in arts, science and/or education practice

All art forms are covered by the programme: dance, drama, performance arts, visual arts, music, film, craft, photography, creative writing or digital media. The Trust invites applications for projects which engage adult audiences and/or young people.

Background
We believe the arts are an effective way of stimulating debate and engaging people with biomedical science. Visual art, music, moving image, creative writing and performance can reach new audiences which may not traditionally be interested in science and provide new ways of thinking about the social, cultural and ethical issues around contemporary science. Collaborative and interdisciplinary practice across the arts and sciences can help to provide new perspectives on both fields. The arts can also provide imaginative ways of engaging and educating young people in the field of science…”
