Weston Loan Programme with Art Fund 2019

The next round of funding from the Weston Loan Programme with Art Fund has now opened. The Programme is designed to directly support museums and galleries which are regional and/or run by local authorities, universities, or have independent Trust status, to borrow major works or collections from the UK’s national museums and galleries.

Generously supported by the Garfield Weston Foundation, the programme will distribute a further £200,000 to museums and galleries across the UK for projects that enable loans of works of art and artefacts to go on display. Grants will range from £5,000 to £25,000 and can be used to cover a range of costs, including transport, insurance, conservation, installation, and activities relating to advocacy, marketing and audience development.

For full information, guidance and details of how to apply please visit Art Fund’s website.

The deadline for application is Tuesday 10 September 2019.

If you have an idea for a project that you would like to discuss, or have any questions about the programme, please contact Penny Bull, pbull@artfund.org
