Funding news: New round of Collecting Cultures fund launched by HLF
Heritage Lottery Fund has launched a new round of Collecting Cultures funding.
Previously, this has been an initiative which supports accredited museums to develop their collections through strategic acquisition projects. In this latest round of funding, we are also welcoming applications from archives and libraries.
The initiative is intended to:
- support the development of collections and their use through strategic acquisition programmes, related research and public programmes
- enhance the professional knowledge and skills of staff working in museums, libraries and archives
- use strategic collecting programmes to support the funded museums, libraries and archives to increase resilience as an organisation.
You can apply for a grant from £50,000 to £500,000.
When is the deadline?
There is one opportunity to apply for Collecting Cultures: the closing date for applications is Friday 2 May 2014, 12 noon.
