Arts Council England and its UK Accreditation partners, the Welsh Government, Museums Galleries Scotland and Northern Ireland Museums Council, recognise that many museums are closing their sites due to the impact of Covid-19 and in response to Government advice.
In order to support the sector during these unprecedented times all Accredited museums in the UK will have their current award status extended for an additional 12 months. The Accreditation team is also postponing all future Accreditation Panel meetings, including the upcoming meeting scheduled for 28 April 2020.
ACE will be publishing an FAQ with greater detail on what this means and how it might affect you by shortly. In the meantime, if you have any questions please do get in touch at: email@example.com.
