Since 2015 ICOM UK, funded by Arts Council England, Heritage Without Borders, and The British Council, has delivered three travel grant schemes:
Working Internationally Regional Project (WIRP)
Heritage Without Borders Travel Grant Scheme (HWB)
ICOM UK/The British Council Travel Grant Scheme (BC)
These schemes provided grants of between £500 and £2000 that enabled museum professionals at all levels of their career to carry out visits to museums across the world; developing museum practice, confidence, and international networks.
ICOM UK are carrying out a consultation with the museum sector to establish the demand, barriers, and benefits of these schemes. This consultation will feed into a wider evaluation and help ICOM UK and partners develop future schemes. They hope that you can spare five minutes to complete a short survey on international travel grants. The survey can be found here.
The survey is open until Monday 4 March 2019.
