Our Funding Programmes

Currently we have two funding opportunities available:

  1. Recovery Grant
  2. Collecting for the Future: Acquisitions Programme

Recovery Grant

About the grant

The Recovery Grant programme is funded by the Art Fund and the NI Museums Council.

For some museums, recovery is about planning to reopen or sustaining reopening, but for others it is about seeking a more effective way of working at home that enables connections with staff and audiences to be maintained while the museum remains closed.  The Recovery Grant is for both.

Deadline for applications Friday 11 September and Friday 30 October
