The Kathy Callow Award
Trust was founded in 1994 from part of the estate of the late Kathy Callow ‘… to provide awards with a long-term benefit to the Public for the conservation of social history artefacts and evidence in small museums….’ Kathy was the curator of the Priest’s House Museum, Wimborne, and an active and long-standing member of the Museums Association. In 2015 the award was incorporated into the DB, KC and EH Association.
The Kathy Callow Trust makes awards to smaller Accredited museums to assist with the costs of conservation and display projects, which might be part of an exhibition, improving stored collections or running workshops for people connected with museums.
How much is available?
The total sum available each year is approximately £1,000 awards are made on a first come first served basis. The award year starts in July. Applications which are eligible for an award but for which there is no funding may be held over at the applicant’s request, until funding is available. Applications may be made at any time.
Who can apply?
Awards are made to smaller Accredited museums with an annual revenue (turnover) of less than £750,000.
What can it fund?
The Trustees particularly welcome applications on the following aspects of social history conservation: the disadvantaged in society, history of dress, women, the sea, industrialisation, and small localities.
The sum awarded will be influenced by the long-term value of the project and the degree of preparatory thought that has been put into determining the content of the work and its costs.
