Meet The Funder #3 – Art Fund

Event Date:9 June 2021 11:00 am — 9 June 2021 12:15pm




In number 3 of the ‘Meet the Funder’ series we will introduce you to the Art Fund.

In a 40 minute talk we will learn about it’s background, current strategic aims and explore all the ways it is currently supporting museums and galleries. In particular this will cover grant programmes that will be open in June 2021, including:

Additionally we will learn about the crowdfunding platform Art Happens and the ticketing platform Art Tickets, and finish with 15 minutes for Q&A’s.

Examples and case studies to illustrate how funding and support programmes can relate to museum work will be used, and any signposting links to useful documentation will be sent to attendees after the meeting.  

The speakers will be Emma Coleman, Art Fund Programme Manager & Merrin Kalinowski, Art Fund Museum Marketing Relationship Manager. The session will be hosted by one of our South East Museum Development Museum Development Officers.

Finally, there will also be a 30 minute open slot after the funder has left the call for any attendees who wish to continue discussions with fellow museums, or to further clarify anything from the session with the SEMD MDO facilitator. 

The session will be held online via the SEMD’s Zoom account. You will not need Zoom installed on your hardware as you will access it via the invite link you will receive from us which will open the meeting in your web browser.
