Creative Collections grant application form

1. About this grant

Creative Collections is a new grant scheme from South East Museum Development offering up to £3000 to enable participating museums to carry out new work that aids the development of their collections.

We are asking museums to consider work that explores hidden histories or knowledge gaps within their collections. This could be done by collaborating with under-represented communities, specialist groups or diverse researchers. This could be to co-curate, contemporary collect, or formalise fresh knowledge input into your collections documentation and broaden the way that information is presented or used. We want to encourage museums to try something new and develop the confidence to take risks, explore their own ideas or the ideas of others.

Before you complete this application, please read through the Grant Guidance and speak with one of our Museum Development Officers.  

Deadline for application is 27 October 2021 (5pm).
