Museums carry important functions in the preservation, documentation and public dissemination of Jewish heritage: they serve as repositories of historical and religious artefacts, as exhibition venues, as research centres for academics, as educational resources for students of all ages and as cultural spaces for the general public.
The Museums Grant Programme supports the multiple missions of museums in the areas of collections management, exhibitions support, professional development and other curatorial aspects that facilitate access to collections, provide evidence of the presence and contribution of the Jewish community in a particular European area, broaden the range of learning opportunities, engage diverse visitors, raise the professional level of museum staff and increase the museum’s visibility and audience. Preference is given to projects that have a long-term and measurable impact, and that foster exchange and cooperation.
We welcome applications from any organisation or institution active in Europe (including Russia, Ukraine, Moldova and Belarus), where activities qualify as charitable under UK charity law.
This grant programme is open for applications from Monday 15th January until Tuesday 27th March 2018.
