Free Emergency Funding Bid-Writing Surgeries for South East Museums

Event Date:8 April 2020 12:00 am — 30 September 2020 12:00am

To help museums respond quickly with applications to the emergency funding schemes from Arts Council England, National Lottery Heritage Fund, and Historic England we are offering free, one-hour bid-writing surgeries to support non-NPO Accredited museums in the South East wanting to apply to either fund.

We have 50 surgeries available with Sonia Rasbery 

These one-hour surgeries can be offered one of two ways (please choose which one you would prefer):

1.    an advice slot, involving a discussion about the scheme/s and application processes in relation to your circumstances, including any questions that remain after you have read the guidance

2.    a proofing slot, involving feedback on what you have already drafted

 

To book one of the ‘advice’ slots, we need you to confirm the following:

·         Museum name and accreditation status

·         Which funder will you be applying to (ACE or NLHF)

·         Which deadline you are aiming to submit your application (i.e. ACE Round 1 is 16 April; Round 2 is 30 April; NLHF 30 June; HE 3 May ).

·         How you want to be contacted (phone / Zoom / GoogleMeet / Skype / Whats App)

·         Contact name, email, phone number (and Skype username if wanting to use that; email alone is fine for Zoom or Google Meet)

·         Whether you would like your Museum Development Officer to attend the virtual meeting (Y/N).

 

To book one of the ‘proofing’ slots, we need you to confirm the following:

·         Museum name and accreditation status

·         Which deadline you are aiming to submit your application (i.e. ACE Round 1 is 16 April; Round 2 is 30 April; NLHF 30 June; HE 3 May ).

·         Contact name, email, phone number

·         Email a draft of your application to your Museum Development Officer ASAP so Sonia can read it before the meeting.
