Wellcome Trust – Arts Awards

Wellcome Trust – Arts Awards

Purpose: The Arts Awards support projects that engage the public with biomedical science through the arts including dance, drama, performance arts, visual arts, music, film, craft, photography, creative writing or digital media.

The aim of the awards is to support arts projects that 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.

Who can apply: Individuals and organisations including artists, scientists, curators, filmmakers, writers, producers, directors, academics, science communicators, teachers, arts workers and education officers.

Funding: Up to £40,000 through the small grant programme. Over £40,000 through the large grant programme.

Deadline: The next deadline for small projects is 4 March 2016 and for large projects 17 February 2016.
