The Orlando Science Center has $75,000 to spend on cooperative local programming as part of their upcoming blockbuster Pompeii: The Immortal City exhibit in 2020.

The media-rich exhibition will take visitors on a journey through the daily life of the first-century Roman town, and places them at the center of events, as the infamous volcano erupting before their eyes.

Orlando Science Center is one of only four locations in the United States to host this exhibit, thanks to generous support from the Orange County Arts and Cultural Affairs Blockbuster Fund.

Organizations from Central Florida are invited to submit ideas for potential programming opportunities that will compliment the art exhibit with educational lectures, performances, and workshops that could be fully-funded by the Science Center from that sweet aforementioned pot o’ gold.

Submissions for proposals are being accepted now through April 30, 2019, and applicants can register at

Partnership events and programs should have the goal of appealing to diverse and broad audiences. No proposal is too small, and collaborations with other institutions are highly encouraged.
