- We love artistic works that invite visitors to participate, create and discuss.
- Great projects bring together art and science, in a creative way. We avoid science that is evaluating art or art that didactically illustrates science.
- Appeal to Science Gallery’s core audience of 15-25 year old’s, and Accenture’s core audience of business leaders, will be a key factor in curatorial decisions.
- Defying categories is good. For example, perhaps your piece is “a kind of a hybrid sculpture, event, installation-puzzle, with a crowdsourced edible citizen-science archive, plus a performance component that will portray a speculative future organism… .” We like stuff like this.
- A true connection to the theme of SYSTEMS and interest in collaboration with Science Gallery Research and The Human Insights Lab at Accenture. We encourage you to take a moment to consider whether your ideas and interests fit before committing your valuable time and energy to the application.
- Collaborations are great! However, you will have to share the funding which is strictly limited. There will be no extra funding for additional collaborators although of course they are always welcome.
- Quality of project idea and work shown in portfolio
- Demonstration of meaningful connection with (and interest in responding to) the key research themes outlined above
- An interest in working collaboratively and adaptively with members of The Dock team
- Quality of imagination and curiosity shown in the proposed project and work
- A demonstrated capacity to make the proposed idea happen within budgets and practical constraints
- Quality of originality of ideas and approach to contributing something new and exciting to the arts/science field
