QUANTUM: Science Gallery Bengaluru


Deadline: February 27, 2024

Science Gallery Bengaluru, India, is calling for project proposals for the upcoming hybrid exhibition-season on the theme QUANTUM, held from June 2025 to March 2026 in Bengaluru and online.

Science Gallery Bengaluru invites proposals for exhibits as well as ideas for public programmes that respond to the QUANTUM Season. Proposals that may be completely physical, completely digital/online or are physical with a digital or online component.

What are they looking for?

Science Gallery’s approach is transdisciplinary so they accept projects from highly diverse disciplines that could include art-works, video, performance, poetry, craft, sound, web-based work, socially engaged work, live experimentation, design, sharing of data from social science, medical, or natural science research. They are also accepting proposals for public programmes in the lead up to and during the exhibition. This could include a film-festival, city walk, hands-on-workshop, talk series, theatre, dance, puppetry, stand-up/ open-mic/ improv, and a master class.

They are looking for both existing and new projects that match Science Gallery’s core aim: to Connect, Participate, and Surprise. Relevance to the core audience of 15–28-year-olds is important.

What is provided?

Projects can be funded up to 3,00,000 INR (including all costs, artist fees, materials, equipment, shipping, travel and taxes). Public programme proposals can typically be funded up to 1,00,000 INR.
