2018 funding

Apply now for Festival of the Mind 2018 funding

We’re looking to support creative partnerships to collaborate on projects to be showcased at the fourth Festival of the Mind in 2018.

Festival of the Mind 20–30 September 2018

Festival of the Mind will showcase projects co-produced by our research staff and Sheffield’s cultural and creative industries. Together they’ll create a magical series of events for everyone to get involved with.

We’re looking to fund a number of projects to showcase during Festival of the Mind. These could be anything from a performance, talk, cultural event, public demonstration to an online initiative. Funding is available to help facilitate your ideas.

If you have a really great idea based on our research and need help to bring it to life, then this festival is for you.

What happened at Ideas Bazaar?

The fourth Ideas Bazaar, hosted by multi-award winning performer and writer Christopher Green, took place in September 2017 and brought together academics and artists to talk creatively about our research.

We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who attended and for all your brilliantly creative ideas that made the event such a success.
