Event Description

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

The scheme aims to:

  • stimulate interest, excitement and debate about biomedical science through high-quality, original artistic practice
  • examine the social, cultural and ethical contexts of biomedical science through the arts
  • encourage new ways of thinking
  • promote high-quality interdisciplinary practice and collaborations between arts, science and education practice
  • support formal and informal learning.

The scheme is open to a wide range of people, including artists, scientists, curators, film makers, writers, producers, directors, academics, science communicators, teachers, arts workers and education officers.

Your project must involve the creation of new artistic work and have biomedical scientific input into the process, either through a scientist taking on an advisory role or through direct collaboration. This expert may be from an ethics, science or history background, but must be an expert in the area of biomedical science you are investigating.

You can apply for funding at two levels:

Small Arts Awards (small- to medium-sized projects - up to and including £30 000)


Funding can support the development of new project ideas, deliver small productions or workshops, investigate and experiment with new methods of engagement through the arts, or develop new collaborative relationships between artists and scientists.

Large Arts Awards (larger projects - above £30 000)


This funding can support full or part production costs for high-quality large arts projects that aim to have significant impact on audiences. These awards are primarily for applicants with a track record with the Wellcome Trust or Wellcome Collection; however, special cases can be made for teams that can provide evidence of an excellent track record and a particularly strong project idea where the initial research and development of the project has already taken place.

HOW TO APPLY

To be eligible, you must be based in the UK or the Republic of Ireland and the primary audience engagement must take place in the UK or the Republic of Ireland. Applicants are usually affiliated to organisations, but you can apply as an individual for a Small Arts Award.

Small Arts Awards (up to and including £30 000)
You should refer to the application guidelines [PDF], Grant Conditions and evaluation guidelines [Word] before completing your application.

Large Arts Awards (over £30 000)
The Large Arts Awards are now primarily for applicants with a track record with the Wellcome Trust or Wellcome Collection; however, special cases can be made for teams that can provide evidence of an excellent track record and a particularly strong project idea.

Upcoming deadlines are:

  • 28 June 2013 (17.00)
  • 1 November 2013 (17.00)

Large Arts Awards (over £30 000)
Expressions of Interest forms can be submitted at any point in the year; however, we are no longer accepting proposals for the 2013 deadline.
