Meet the Funder #2 National Lottery Heritage Fund

Event Date:12 March 2021 10:30 am — 12 March 2021 11:30am

Purpose: These ‘Meet the Funder’ sessions have been designed by South East Museum Development to be an ongoing series of introductory sessions with frequent funders in our sector. The aim is to give a more informal ‘face behind the funder’ feel, to provide an opportunity to meet in person and create a friendly, neutral environment to ask questions. The sessions will also provide an opportunity for the invited funder to communicate how their strategic aims translate into their current funding opportunities for museums and highlight key considerations for applying.

#2: In this session we will explore the National Lottery Heritage Fund (NLHF) We will discuss the relaunched National Lottery Grants for Heritage, from £3,000 up to £5million, highlighting some examples of how projects can meet the NLHF refocused priorities for 2021-22.

Speakers: Joanne McAleer & Chris Mason, two of the team of NLHF engagement Officers for the London & South area.

Format: An hour-long session hosted on the SEMD Zoom account with presentation slides from Joanne & Chris, followed by a facilitated discussion using questions or queries from the participants.
