A fantastic new funding opportunity for artists to get creative with science-inspired ideas. Looking forward to reading all of your fantastic ideas.
Science Event Running 28th September, 2012
Submission for Art Installation
Aims: 1. To show how science is all around us and that researchers are normal human beings with an extraordinary job.
2. To develop art inspired by a scientific concept or idea, perhaps even science happening locally.
3. Interaction with the public
4. Located between the streets and buildings of St. James Cavalier, St. George’s Square and possibly Manoel Theatre in Valletta, Malta
Pluses, but not essential:
art can be replicated in more than one street
It can be retained longer than one night (around one week— a month)
What we need from you (1–3 pages long—short and sweet):
Art Project Summary — most important part to showcase your idea, focus on what is most important for your project.
Background and objectives — details on the theory developed, scientific theory it is based on or exploring
Execution (Methods) — location, type of art, what it consists of
costings (including breakdown of costs) — materials, hours and so on. In Euros, inc. VAT.
Evaluation — How would you gauge if the audience liked it, and how much did they take back from it. This will need to be co-ordinated with the whole event, but have a think about it, it might not be feasible depending on the artwork.
Outcomes — how many people are you expecting to reach, target audience, what will audience take from the art.
Deadline: 1st December 2011 (extended till 8th December). Proposal will then be chosen by the board to be sent for funding. The result of the funding would be received by end of February.
