The Wellcome Trust Arts Awards support the creation of new artistic work that critically engages artists and audiences with biomedical science.
The Wellcome Trust believe that artists have a distinct approach to understanding and communicating ideas that can illuminate and challenge perceptions within society.
Arts Awards encourage creative collaborations between art and science.
You can apply for funding at two levels:
- Small Arts Awards (small to medium-sized projects – up to and including £40,000) to support the research and development of new project ideas or ways of working, investigate and experiment with new methods of engagement through the arts, or fund or part-fund final production costs;
- Large Arts Awards (larger projects – above £40000) can support full or part production costs for high-quality, large arts projects that aim to have significant reach or impact on audiences.
The Arts Awards team at the Wellcome Trust are happy to answer questions and discuss the suitability of projects for the fund ahead of making an application.
