John Ellerman Foundation launches Regional Museums and Galleries Fund

John Ellerman Foundation has created a Regional Museums and Galleries Fund, focusing on visual and decorative arts and social and natural history collections.


The Fund aims to help strengthen regional museums and galleries in the UK. We want to help organisations enhance and sustain curatorial development to attract a broader public.

£500,000 has been earmarked to be awarded through the Fund in 2018. John Ellerman Foundation expects to make about five or six grants for periods of two to three years. While the average grant size is ca. £85k we will consider higher amounts for exceptional projects.


The deadline for applications is 1 December 2017. Further information can be found by clicking here.
