SHARE / Art Fund Recovery Grants 2022-23 launched

SHARE is offering another round of Recovery Grants to help museums reset after the Covid pandemic, reconnect with people, and reimagine their future as vital community spaces. You can apply for a grant between £1,000 and £5,000.

Examples of activities for which grants can be used include (but not limited to):

  • Developing and using collections in new ways

Digital engagement; co-curation, community engagement and commissioning; contemporary collecting; stories linked to key issues (e.g. equity and social justice or the climate crisis).

  • Audience development

Destination marketing; supporting local audiences; community consultation; giving a voice to underrepresented audiences; involving more young people in museums; working with the wider cultural sector in a locality to collaborate and strengthen offers; collecting and using audience data.

  • Volunteering and workforce development

New volunteering models; recruitment, training and development; health and wellbeing.

Recovery Grants are open now, and the deadline is midday on 8 September 2022. The grant pot is limited to £19,000.

You can find the full Guidance Notes here, and the application form here.
