Funding: Treasure Plus – Engaging the public with Treasure
Treasure Plus is a funding programme to deepen public engagement with Treasure and other archaeological material, launched in 2013 by the Art Fund with support from The Headley Trust.
The funding programme hopes to deepen public engagement with items of Treasure, and related archaeological material, by funding interpretation and research projects.
Since the Treasure Act was launched in 1997, the Art Fund has received a growing number of applications for funding towards acquisitions of items of Treasure.
Who is eligible and what grants are available?
This funding programme has therefore been designed to help museums of all sizes make the most of their items of Treasure, and bring these objects to life, through small grants of between £2,000 and £10,000.
How do I make an application?
Interested parties are asked to discuss any initial ideas and proposals with the Programmes team at the Art Fund before submitting an application. Please do not worry if all the details have not been worked out; this is just an opportunity to make sure that the project would be eligible before completing a full application.
Applicants will then be asked to complete an application form which can be downloaded from the Art Fund website.
Deadline for applications
All applications should be submitted for consideration by 12.00 noon on Wednesday 12 March 2014.
There will be a period of review during which applicants may be asked for further information in order to support their applications. The committee will then meet in early April and applicants will be advised of the outcome within 5 working days of the meeting.
