Perform your Science is an opportunity for PhD students and early career researchers to tell their science research stories through the arts.

Expressions of Interest are currently being sought for funding to develop & perform a Perform your Science project during National Science Week 2018. Ten grants of up to $2000 each will be available to selected applicants to assist with performance development costs.

The project will culminate in a series of live performances suitable for a general community audience to be held in an Adelaide theatre venue during National Science Week in August 2018. The live performances can take a variety of forms including music, dance, theatre, circus, puppetry and many others.

Perform your Science encourages collaboration. Applicants are urged to seek scientific and/or artistic collaborations and engage with partners to bring as much creativity to the project as possible. While this is first and foremost a story-telling project designed to elicit creative ways of telling the stories of local science and research, there will be a competitive element and the winning performance will be judged by an expert panel including science and arts specialists.

Expressions of Interest are currently being sought and close on 23 February 2018. For full details of the project, head to the Perform your Science grants page.
