Salisbury International Arts Festival 2019 STEAM project

'Enquiring Young Minds'

Wiltshire Creative is a pan-arts organisation that brings together the energy and ambition of Salisbury Arts Centre, Salisbury International Arts Festival and Salisbury Playhouse. It is an ambitious and innovative joint arts offer that secures a bright future for audiences, artists and participants.

We are announcing an opportunity for Design and Technology, Science and Art departments working across different media to submit work to be exhibited during the 2019 Salisbury International Arts Festival. The festival will highlight the anniversaries of the Fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 and the Moon Landing of 1969 and runs from 24 May to 9 June 2019.

This is an open call for students to explore the themes of curiosity and human endeavour, breaking away from the constraints of what is accepted in order to discover and explore the unknown.  We urge students to demonstrate their ability to stretch and challenge themselves and the perceptions of those around them, to be creative, ambitious and inventive. Encouraging students to interrogate ‘What would happen if…’ to allow their imaginations to run free and to use science, design and technology to creatively answer the questions that interest them the most. Challenges may be set, problems solved and discoveries made. This project is designed to be a practical inventive aid to support the teaching of the curriculum and can be used for events such as; ‘Science Week’.

Submissions may be in the form of 2 dimensional designs, digital programmes, scientific experiments and discoveries, video, sound installation or fully constructed 3 dimensional pieces. We are excited about the spectrum of ideas open to realisation.

Expressions of interest should be sent to becky.mills@wiltshirecreative.co.uk by Friday 1 March 2019 and submissions should be delivered by Friday 10 May 2019. A maximum of 5 submissions per class should be entered for the project. A small selection will be chosen to appear at Salisbury Arts Centre and a further selection will be displayed in Salisbury Library.
