Art Fund has launched two new funding schemes, together with the second round of Headley Fellowships with Art Fund. Please find details of all schemes below.

Conservation grants

Last year Art Fund began making grants to cover conservation – including work that allowed Artemisia Gentileschi’s Self Portrait as Saint Catherine of Alexandria to recently tour the UK in her full glory before settling in at the National Gallery. Art Fund have now opened a dedicated scheme of conservation grants to help safeguard the future of more artworks in collections across the country.

Small project grants

 Art Fund are keen to help museums, galleries and other visual arts organisations realise adventurous projects across a range of activities to benefit their audiences. To support this aim, Art Fund have launched their small project grants, which provide funds for museums to trial new ideas and take more creative risks, with grants of up to £10,000 available to back projects of all kinds.

 Headley Fellowships with Art Fund

 Now in their second year, the Headley Fellowships with Art Fund free up time for curators to carry out research into their collections by providing funding for their posts to be backfilled. The scheme is part of an ongoing initiative to encourage the development of UK collections expertise and the sharing of specialist knowledge both with the public and across the sector.
