Wellcome Trust – Arts Awards (UK)

The Wellcome Trust is inviting organisations and individuals to apply for funding through its Arts Awards.
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
• Digital media.
Applications are invited for projects of up to £30,000 through their small grants programme, and for projects above £30,000 through their large grant programme. 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. The scheme is open to a wide range of people including, among others, artists, scientists, curators, filmmakers, writers, producers, directors, academics, science communicators, teachers, arts workers and education officers.
The next application deadline for small projects is the 27th June 2014, the deadline for large projects has now passed.
