Art Fund’s Respond and Reimagine grant awards funding from £10,000 to £50,000 to help museums, galleries and cultural organisations respond to immediate challenges connected to the Covid-19 crisis, and offer support to adapt and reimagine ways of working for the future.
The following organisations – UK public museums, galleries, historic houses, libraries and archives – are eligible to apply:
- ordinarily have spaces for the public to visit and experience the visual arts or other object-based collections. This could include natural history, maritime and transport, archaeology and social history.
- can demonstrate that you usually operate to best practice standards or have a good track record in delivering high quality public activity.
If you are an organisation that is a visual arts agency or festival, you are welcome to apply providing you can meet the above and have a strong visual arts focus. Theatre, music, dance or other art forms are not able to apply.
