2020 Edinburgh Science Festival

The deadline has now passed.

We're seeking Expressions of Interest for artworks and an immersive experience at the 2020 Edinburgh Science Festival. The festival theme will be Elementary, using the ancient classifications of Earth, Air, Fire and Water plus a fifth element to focus on the digital world - Aether.

The festival is exploring ways they can use creative technology to innovate their programme. The aim is to introduce more technology, engineering and design into the festival through online content, augmented live events and new art. This call is open to creators anywhere in the world.

There are three opportunities, 'Aether' is for new media artworks to be presented at the City Art Centre, 'Pale Blue Dot' is for artworks on the theme of water to be presented at National Museums Scotland, and 'Immersive Experience' is for a creative technology happening, somewhere in the city.

Below you'll find attached the Elementary vision document for the festival along with individual PDFs for each of the three opportunities. We've a £60k budget overall, with up to £30k available per project. The deadline is 5pm on Friday 30th August 2019. Click below for more information.
