The John Ellerman Foundation has recently created a curatorial development fund worth £500,000 which aims to strengthen regional museums and galleries in the UK. The foundation wants to help organisations enhance and sustain curatorial development to attract a broader public. They expect to make about five or six grants for periods of two to three years and are keen to fund work which has a legacy within and beyond the organisation.
They are particularly interested in applications which enable news ways of working both for established curators and those just starting out or ensure organisations are able to safeguard and advance curatorial skills through a time of development or change.
Their focus is on visual and decorative arts and social and natural history collections.
The closing date is Friday 1 December 2017. For more information click here
