Reminder – Ready to Borrow surgery slots still available

In 2016 we announced details of Arts Council England’s grant programme for museums to borrow loans for display and to meet the requirements of the Government Indemnity Scheme. This year’s funding allocation was announced early to give sufficient lead in time for museums to approach nationals and Major Partner Museums to request loans.

£132,000 has been allocated for museums in the North West in 2017-18 and the funding will be distributed through MDNW. A single museum can apply for a minimum of £10,000 to a maximum of £50,000. A consortium of museums can apply for a maximum of £80,000.

The funding must be used for exhibitions and displays which include loans from one or more of the following, in order of priority:

  • national museums and Major Partner Museums
  • other Accredited museums in the UK
  • publicly-funded museums overseas

The loan(s) must be confirmed between the borrowing and lending organisations prior to application to this fund.

To apply for “Ready to Borrow” funding you MUST attend one of the surgeries held by the MDNW team for advice and guidance before submitting an application. We will not accept applications from museums that have not attended. The surgeries are:

3rd July 2017
Salford Museum & Art Gallery

12th July 2017
Lancaster City Museum

19th July 2017
Norton Priory

Each surgery will run from 10am to 12.30pm. To book your place at a surgery, please complete this form. We will confirm your surgery slots nearer the time once we know how many people are attending each day. The deadline for booking a surgery slot is 12th June.

For further details on eligibility and timescales, refer to the ACE Ready to Borrow guidance 2017-18 and the ACE Ready to Borrow Application Form. Please read through these before contacting one of the team for advice.
