Are you a museum, archive or library interested in finding out more about the HLF Collecting Cultures initiative?
Go along to a one off workshop to find out more about the programme and what you need to do to apply.
Collecting Cultures is an initiative which supports museums, archives, and libraries (with special collections), to develop their collections through strategic acquisition projects. Grantees plan and deliver programmes of targeted purchase and activities to engage a wider range of people with their collections.
The Heritage Lottery Fund has opened the second Collecting Cultures initiative with a national £5million budget. This is a one off initiative with one chance to apply before the deadline of 2 May 2014. You can apply for a grant from £50,000 to £500,000
Please note HLF recommend that you send them a project enquiry form before you apply. Please do this before 3 March 2014, as after this date we will not be able to accept project enquiries for this initiative. Register a project enquiry.
The workshop will take place as follows
Monday 3rd February 1-3pm
St George’s Crypt, St George’s Church, Great George Street, Leeds, LS1 3BR
This event will outline the scope and aims of the programme, running through the outcomes that Collecting Cultures projects need to achieve. We will explain the application process and present case studies of successful Collecting Cultures projects.
