This could include utilising digital technology,storytelling, art-science collaborations, performances, workshops or other events. Projects must be completed and funding awarded within 1 year of the award being made.
The grants are being made available through three funding tiers:

• Silver up to £15,000
• Gold up to £30,000
The closing date for applications is 11.59 pm on the 31st May 2019.
