What is a small WMMD grant?
Museums may apply for grants of up to £3,000 to support projects to help increase access to and engagement with their collections. Although this is a very competitive grant your museum should still apply and if you are unsure please contact your Museum Development Officer for further information.
Applicant organisations must hold Full Accreditation, Provisional Accreditation or be formally working towards Accreditation in order to be eligible to apply for this grant. We may draw upon Accreditation records with your permission.
Please note National Portfolio Organisations are not eligible to apply.
What will the grant fund?
The 2019 Small Grant Scheme will support museums who demonstrate how they use their collections and planning to reflect the diversity of their audiences. They need to show evidence of how the ‘Creative Case for Diversity’ is at the heart of everything they do, from consulting with diverse and underrepresented groups to diversifying their programmes, collections and exhibitions.
All projects should show how they seek to develop and respond to audience development opportunities; improving the services on offer, strengthening sustainability, building resilience and creating new conversations and activity around collections.
