2019 Science-Arts Grant Round  

EOI due Monday 2nd September. Full application due Friday 27th September.

Building upon the success of similar programs for South Australia since 2017, we invite interested parties to submit an Expression of Interest to the Inspiring South Australia program for funding to develop and produce a Science-Arts Collaborative Project.

This year the collaboration can be based in any region of the state. Projects based in metropolitan Adelaide, however, are encouraged to link with at least one regional organisation so that communities in regional SA can benefit from the collaboration. (Regional SA refers to areas outside of the Greater Adelaide metropolitan area.)

Expressions of Interest are sought from eligible applicants for special funding of up to $7,500 for the development and production of a science communication project that links at least two groups or organisations, including at least one identifying as  ‘science’ and one as ‘arts’. The aim is to tell a locally relevant science-related story to the wider community.

This may take the form of a performance or series of performances, an exhibition, a showing, a screening or an installation. It must be developed during 2019/20 and performed during 2019 or early 2020.

Inquiries and submissions of Expressions of Interest should be sent to the following contact.
