Description:

All art forms are covered by the programme: dance, drama, performance arts, visual arts, music, film, craft, photography, creative writing or digital media. Wellcome Trust invite applications for projects which engage adult audiences and/or young people. Projects should have some biomedical scientific input either through a scientist taking on an advisory role or through direct collaboration. Applicants are encouraged to investigate new methods of interdisciplinary working as well as new models of engagement in biomedical science.

Funding :

Funding can be applied for at two levels:

* Small to medium-sized projects (up to and including £30,000) – Funding can either be used to support the development of new project ideas, deliver small-scale productions or workshops, investigate and experiment with new methods of engagement through the arts, or develop new collaborative relationships between artists and scientists.

* Large projects (above £30,000) – This funding can be used to fund full or part production costs for large-scale arts projects that aim to have significant impact on the public’s engagement with biomedical science. They are also interested in supporting high-quality, multi-audience, multi-outcome projects. Applicants can apply for any amount within the above boundaries, for projects lasting a maximum of three years.
