Regional museums and galleries in the UK with an income of between £100,000 and £10 million can now apply for a share of £500,000 of funding which has been made available to enhance and sustain curatorial development and attract a broader public. Grants are available for a period of two to three years and should support work that will:
- enable new ways of working both for established curators and those just starting out; or
- ensure organisations are able to safeguard and advance curatorial skills through a time of development or change.
Funding is being provided by the John Ellerman Foundation which has a focus on visual and decorative arts and social and natural history collections. The average grant size is ca. £86,000, applications will be considered for higher amounts for exceptional projects. The closing date for applications is the 3rd of December 2018.
