Fund description:

These new project grants aim to help visual arts organisations as they reimagine their activities following the pandemic.

Grants up to £50,000 are available to museums, galleries, historic houses, archives and libraries, agencies, and festivals to help them move forward following the COVID-19 pandemic. The funding is intended for organisations that hold collections, which may include fine and applied art and design, archaeology and/or social history.

The aims of the programme are:

  • to support organisations as they reimagine their activities following the pandemic;
  • to help organisations build expertise, capacity and connections within and outside the sector.

The priority themes are:

  • Collections
  • Digital
  • Engagement
  • Workforce

Activities can include revisiting your collections and spaces eg. new interpretations, new resources; refreshing skills and knowledge; and reimagining your activities and purpose. This will help organisations to try something new, improve their expertise and engage with a wider audience.

Not-for-profit visual arts organisations with a formal constitution can apply.
