How could you creatively explore the Mind & Body theme during Voluntary Arts Festival, 5-14 May 2017?
Try knitting a neuron or brain hat?
Learn some body anatomy through yoga and life drawing?
Explore happiness and singing through a choir concert or discussion?
And much more besides . . .
Community groups across Scotland are invited to apply for small grants of up to £150, to help support free local events exploring the Mind & Body theme through:
– visual arts
. . . or whatever else you can imagine!
The Mind & Body theme is being run in partnership with the Fun Palaces campaign, celebrating “Everyone an Artist, Everyone a Scientist”. Events that build on your skills and passions whilst experimenting with something new, across the arts and sciences are particularly welcome.
Funding will also come with additional practical support from the Fun Palaces Scotland Science Ambassador (and Voluntary Arts Scotland Scientist-In-Residence) Lewis Hou. Community groups who have not approached art-science collaboration before and activities outside of the central belt of Scotland will be prioritised.
Application is by a brief expression of interest online form, video submission or phone discussion with Lewis.
Official deadline is Monday 3rd of April for guaranteed consideration, but expressions of interest will be continued to be accepted until the 10th of April.
