ACE Museum Resilience Fund 2015-18

The fund will focus on any gaps (geographical or otherwise) or development opportunities across the sector. The deadline for expression of interest is 5pm on Thursday 18 February 2016.

Arts Council England is the development organisation for English regional museums. At a challenging time for funding in the sector, the focus of our approach for 2015-18 is on building a more resilient museums sector. One of the ways we will do this is through the Museum resilience fund.


The Museum resilience fund addresses the priorities set out in The ACE mission, Great art and culture for everyone, particularly linked to Goals 3 and 4 of this mission: supporting a step change for the museums sector by enabling museums to become more sustainable and resilient businesses.


A budget of £10million was made available for 2015/16, with indicative budgets for 2016/17 and 2017/18 remaining at that level.



How to apply


The deadline for expression of interest is 5pm on Thursday 18 February 2016. Applicants will be informed of the outcome of their expression of interest by email by 5pm on Wednesday 23 March 2016.


Expressions of interest can be made through the online application portal.


The deadline for full applications will be 5pm on Thursday 5 May 2016.
