Welcolm trust announces new award scheme
- By: Annabel Ferriman
This hybrid animal--part elephant, part rabbit--is an image from a series of short films, called Eye-See, which won a “science on stage and screen” award from the research charity the Wellcome Trust last year.
The films, made by Rosetta Pictures and APT Films, aim to show people with normal vision how the world looks to someone with visual agnosia. Now the Wellcome Trust has announced a new £1m award scheme to support and encourage innovative arts projects that investigate biomedical science.
The trust is inviting applications for a round of research awards of up to £15 000 ($24 400; £22 600), to support the development of ideas in their formative stages, and a series of production awards (in the region of £100 000) for substantial projects.
