Arts Council's Museum Resilience Fund now open

The Museum resilience fund addresses the priorities set out in our mission, Great art and culture for everyone, particularly linked to Goals 3 and 4 of our mission: supporting a step change for the museums sector by enabling museums to become more sustainable and resilient businesses.

The fund will focus on any gaps (geographical or otherwise) or development opportunities across the sector, recognising that excellence and the potential for excellence can be found in museums of all sizes.

Projects will cover an 18 month period beginning in October 2016 and they will be completed by 31 March 2018. 

The deadline for expression of interest is 5pm on Thursday 18 February 2016.  Arts Council will let applicants know the outcome of their expression of interest by email by 5pm on Wednesday 23 March 2016. The deadline for full applications will be 5pm on Thursday 5 May 2016.
